SLAVIANSK, Ukraine, May 5 (Reuters) - At least two separatist armoured personnel carriers and several rebels fled heavy fighting on the eastern outskirts of the pro-Russian rebel stronghold of Slaviansk in Ukraine on Monday.
Heavy gunfire could be heard almost continuously and seemed closer to the centre of Slaviansk in eastern Ukraine than a day earlier, a Reuters correspondent said. Four ambulances were seen near the area. (reporting by Maria Tsvetkova, writing by Elizabeth Piper, editing by Timothy Heritage)
