Pro-Russian rebels seize railway post near Ukraine's Donetsk, halt trains

KIEV (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists have seized the control centre for Donetsk railways in eastern Ukraine, all but stopping trains from running, a spokesman for the Donetsk railway said on Friday.

The rebels had seized the command post near Yasynuvata, just north of Donetsk, and had cut all electricity, he said. "Movement has all but stopped."
