Ukraine crisis: 'Lull in fighting in Sloviansk'

The fighting in the eastern Ukrainian city of Sloviansk has temporarily ceased after government forces made an attempt to wrest control from Pro-Russian fighters.

Four Ukrainian soldiers were killed and an army helicopter shot down. Casualties were also reported among the rebels.

The BBC's Fergal Keane, who is in the city, reports that the area is still extremely tense and dangerous, and there is a sense that there will be more action to come.
