Deadly Weekend in Ukraine

Over the weekend, violence escalated between pro-Russian rebels and the military in eastern Ukraine. Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov alleged that the government killed and injured rebels in a recent attack, while rebels shot down two military helicopters and killed a pilot and serviceman. At least 42 people died in clashes in the city of Odessa on Sunday.
