DONETSK, Ukraine — Ukrainian troops tightened a security cordon around a major insurgent-held eastern city Tuesday, but pro-Russia militia acted with impunity elsewhere in the turbulent region bordering Russia, surrounding a major Interior Ministry base.

Rebels said 10 people — fighters and civilians — were killed by Ukrainian troops during clashes Monday.
