Deadly bomb blast hits rally in Kharkiv

February22, 2015 (BBC News Europe) A bomb has killed at least two people, including a police officer, and injured 10 others at a rally in Ukraine's second city Kharkiv located about 150 km. east from Poltava. The march was one of several being held to mark a year since the Kiev uprising that led to the fall of pro-Russia leader Viktor Yanukovych. Kharkiv lies outside the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, where a ceasefire appears finally to be taking hold.
