Gunmen Open Fire On Police Headquarters In Luhansk, Eastern Ukraine

KIEV, April 29 (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine opened fire with automatic weapons and threw stun grenades at the local police headquarters in the eastern city of Luhansk on Tuesday, a Reuters photographer said.

Around 20 gunmen shot at the building, trying to force police to surrender their weapons after separatists seized the local government headquarters, prosecutor's office and television centre earlier in the day. (Reporting by Vasily Fedosenko; Writing by Matt Robinson)
