Fighting between government forces and pro-Russian rebels left at least 10 civilians dead in eastern Ukraine Sunday, as international experts pushed on with their grim hunt for remains at the crash site of downed flight MH17 . The deputy mayor in the besieged insurgent stronghold of Donetsk told AFP that shooting in a residential suburb had killed six civilians and injured 13, the latest victims of more than three months of civil war that has claimed at least 1,150 lives.The U.N. says over 100,000 people have fled the fighting for other parts of Ukraine while Russia claims some 500,000 have crossed the border in search of refuge.The U.S. accuses insurgents of blowing the airliner out of the sky on July 17 with a surface-to-air missile likely supplied by Russia, while Moscow and the rebels have pointed the finger at the Ukrainian military.
