Donetsk bridges blown up

7 Jul, 2014

Explosions blow up three  bridges leading into Donetsk. Although it is not clear who caused the explosions, they are being blamed on Russian rebels, as they attempt to hold on to one of the last major cities under their control.   After being driven out of Sloviansk by the Ukranian Army, the rebels fled to Donetsk where they had previously declared their independence as Donetsk’s People’s Republic. Reuters is reporting bursts of gunfire in many of  the neighborhoods in the center of Donetsk, and is saying people are fearful of warfare breaking out between the army and the rebels.
