A stand-off between government forces and pro-Russia gunmen is continuing after Ukraine's military sought to retake control of Donetsk airport.

Kiev deployed helicopters and fighter jets to launch air attacks after armed separatists occupied it.

The fighting came as Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine's new president, said he wanted to talk to Russia to end the crisis.
