KIEV, Aug 24 (Reuters) - The number of Ukrainian government forces who have been killed fighting separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine has reached 722, the national defence and security council said on Sunday.

This marked a jump from August 11 when the figure was at 568 - meaning that more than 150 troops, interior forces and border guards have been killed in less than two weeks. (Reporting by Natalya Zinets and Alessandra Prentice; Writing by Richard Balmforth; Editing by Andrew Roche)
