A pro-Russia protester warms himself by the fire on a barricade outside a regional government building in DonetskBy Aleksandar Vasovic and Alissa de Carbonnel SLAVIANSK/YENAKIEVO, Ukraine (Reuters) - At least three people were killed in a gunfight in the early hours of Sunday near a Ukrainian city controlled by pro-Russian separatists, shaking an already fragile international accord that was designed to avert a wider conflict. The incident triggered a war of words between Moscow and Ukraine's Western-backed government, with each questioning the other's compliance with the agreement, brokered last week in Geneva, to end a crisis that has made Russia's ties with the West more fraught than at any time since the Cold War. The separatists said armed men from Ukraine's Right Sector nationalist group had attacked them. Failure of the Geneva agreement could bring more bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, but may also prompt the United States to impose tougher sanctions on the Kremlin - with far-reaching consequences for many economies and importers of Russian energy.

Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine have detained a Ukrainian journalist, accusing her of "war crimes" during the "Euromaidan" protests that toppled the Moscow-backed president, her lawyer said on Monday. Irma Krat, 29, was held late on Sunday by militants in the city of Slaviansk, said Oleg Veremienko, a lawyer for the online television news site Krat runs. They will check the reports I've filed and then they'll decide when to let me go." A man in camouflage gear whose name was given as Pavel told Life News she was being investigated for "war crimes" against riot police and civilians during the Kiev protests which led to the fall of President Viktor Yanukovich in February. Interfax-Ukraine news agency and other local media noted a report from a blogger in eastern Ukraine who said three other, foreign, journalists had been held by militants in Slaviansk on Monday.

By Abdi Sheikh and Feisal Omar MOGADISHU (Reuters) - A Somali lawmaker was killed when a bomb planted by Islamist militants ripped through his car in the capital Mogadishu on Monday, officials said. Al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab told Reuters it set off the device to punish parliamentarians for backing foreign forces in the country - and threatened to carry out more attacks. The blast, which police said also wounded another lawmaker and a civilian, came a day after President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud began a three-day conference on how to improve security in the war-ravaged capital. President Mohamud called the killing of lawmaker Isaak Mohamed Rinoco a "cowardly attack" which would not derail peace efforts.
