The UN human rights office says an average of 13 people have been killed daily in eastern Ukraine since a 5 September ceasefire came into place.

In the eight weeks since the truce came into force, the UN says 957 people have been killed, amid continuing violations on both sides.

A new report by the office describes a total breakdown of law and order in rebel-held Donetsk and Luhansk.

Russia has been widely accused of fanning the violence by covertly supplying the rebels with military aid - an accusation it denies.
