Ukraine rebels look to strategic south

There is fresh concern that pro-Russia rebels who have taken a key eastern town now have their sights set on Mariupol.

    The Ukrainian army and separatists are accusing each other of violating a truce, and now there is concern the rebels are moving their focus to Mariupol in the south.

    The city is strategically important because capturing the port would give the rebels access to the Azov Sea.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from Mariupol.
