Around three dozen people a day are being killed in eastern Ukraine where both sides target civilians in violation of international law and the death toll has risen to at least 2,220, the U.N. human rights office said Friday.The latest findings from the Geneva office, based on reports from a 34-member U.N. monitoring mission in Ukraine, show both sides committing a range of abuses targeting civilians trapped in urban areas or trying to flee through so-called safe corridors.As of two weeks ago at least 468 people believed to be detained by the various armed groups, the report says, while the Ukrainian government has arrested more than 1,000 people in the country's east on charges of taking part in terrorist activities.
