Several buildings have been damaged by shelling in an eastern Ukraine city controlled by pro-Russian separatists.
Residents said the shelling happened on Sunday. Rebels have held the Ukrainian government responsible for the rising number of civilian casualties in the conflict, while Ukraine has insisted that the pro-Russian rebels are responsible for the bloodshed.
On Saturday, Ukraine's new president, Petro Poroshenko, was sworn into office, calling for armed groups to lay down their weapons and promising amnesty for those "without blood on their hands."
