Ukraine: rebels fire on border guard vessel

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — A spokesman for Ukraine's offensive against Russia-backed rebels in the country's east says a border guard vessel has been fired on with artillery.

The spokesman, Oleksiy Dmitrashkovsky, said the attack occurred Sunday afternoon, but he had no further information, including how many people were aboard the boat.

The attack took place amid heightened concern that the rebels are trying to take control of the land bridge between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula which Russia annexed in March.

Until this week, the area along the Azov Sea coast had escaped the fighting that has gripped areas farther north since April.
