Ukraine prisoner exchange

Pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine have exchanged scores of prisoners with the Ukrainian government near the militant-held city of Donetsk

The rebels handed over 150 soldiers in exchange for at least 222 people held by the government.

Unverified images on Twitter show rows of men in civilian clothes standing on a road, supervised by armed men.

Inconclusive talks were held this week in Minsk, Belarus, on ending a conflict which has claimed 4,700 lives.
