The Ukrainian military says one of its helicopters has been shot down by pro-Russian rebels in the east, killing all 9 people on board.

It says the Mi-8 helicopter was hit by a rocket shortly after take-off outside the rebel-held city of Sloviansk.

It comes a day after the rebels vowed to observe a ceasefire until Friday, in response to a government peace plan.

But Ukraine's president said he may end it due to "constant violation by rebels who are controlled from abroad".
