Two Dead in Blast at Eastern Ukraine March

A blast during a Sunday street march to mark the one-year anniversary of Ukraine’s pro-Western uprising killed two people and wounded at least 10 in the country’s second-largest city, the latest in a series of explosions that have hit pro-Ukraine targets in government-controlled areas.

An explosive device detonated in a crowd of demonstrators gathered Sunday outside the Palace of Sports in the city of Kharkiv to commemorate the anniversary of last year’s pro-Western uprising on Kiev’s Independence Square, according to a statement released by the Kharkiv city government.
