Ukraine shells Donetsk as air force grounded

Ukrainian troops pound separatist positions trying to find a way into the city, as it is too dangerous to fly overhead.

    There has been heavy shelling in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, as the government steps up its campaign to take back control of the city.

    It is too dangerous for the air force to fly in the area, with separatists having brought down almost 20 Ukrainian aircraft since April.
