KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Three pro-Russian militants are dead and 13 are wounded after Ukrainian troops repelled an attack on a National Guard base in the Black Sea port of Mariupol in the south-east part of the country.
Ukraine's interior minister says a crowd of about 300 men armed with Molotov cocktails attacked the base late Wednesday.
He says 63 people are under arrest.
Pro-Russian militants have seized police stations and administrative buildings in at least ten towns in the region.
