KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian forces have retaken city hall in the eastern port of Mariupol, Ukrainian media said on Wednesday, after heavy fighting with pro-Russian militants overnight.
Ukraine's Channel 5 television said the National Guard had seized the building, forcing rebels into the streets, where they blocked the main thoroughfare, burning tyres and a trolleybus. By Wednesday morning, traffic could again move.
The report could not be immediately confirmed.
