Four armored vehicles belonging to the OSCE monitoring mission in Ukraine's eastern conflict zone were destroyed overnight, the security watchdog said Sunday, describing the apparent arson attack as an attempt to restrict its work.The attack follows a protest of about 300 people outside the OSCE's hotel in rebel-held Donetsk on Thursday, when demonstrators held up banners criticizing the "silence and blindness" of the mission and sprayed red liquid from a hose onto the ground.The OSCE has regularly accused both separatists and Ukrainian troops of failing to respect the ceasefire and not fully withdrawing heavy artillery as required by the peace agreement, which was brokered in February to end a conflict in which more than 6,500 people have been killed.
