DONETSK, Ukraine — Ukraine's Interior Minister says 30 pro-Russian insurgents have been killed during security operations to expunge anti-government forces stationed in and near a city in the east.

Arsen Avakov said on his Facebook page Tuesday that four government troops also died and another 20 were injured during fighting around Slovyansk.

Ukrainian forces have for days created a security cordon around the city and moved Monday in an apparent attempt to squeeze pro-Russian forces.
