Six people have been killed in shelling in an eastern Ukrainian town as Russia eyes its next major offensive. Five bodies were found in the rubble of a house in Toretsk, in the Donetsk region, while another person died in hospital, emergency services said. The Ukrainian military said Russia appeared to be regrouping for an offensive towards nearby Sloviansk. The city was captured in 2014 by pro-Russian separatists who held it for nearly three months.
