At least 3 killed, 10 injures blast in Ukrin’s patriotic rally

Kiev: A bomb has killed at least three people and injured 10 at a patriotic rally in Ukraine’s second city, Kharkiv, in what police suspect was a terror attack.
At least one police officer was killed, the interior ministry says. Kharkiv lies outside the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, where a ceasefire appears finally to be taking hold.
The government and rebels there have agreed to start pulling back heavy weapons from the frontline, with the actual withdrawal expected to get under way on Tuesday.
The process will not be completed until at least 8 March, five days later than the deadline set at peace talks in Minsk this month.
Another key element of the Minsk deal moved forward on Saturday when the Ukrainian government and the rebels exchanged 191 prisoners.
