Ukraine's President Poroshenko aims a rifle during his visit to a demonstration of new weapons for the Ukrainian armed forces at a military base outside KievKIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - At least three civilians were killed in overnight fighting in eastern Ukraine and government troops pressed ahead with their campaign against pro-Russian rebels, taking a strategic point close to where Malaysian flight MH17 crashed, officials said on Monday. Russia accuses Kiev of responsibility. Kiev said on Monday its troops recaptured Savur Mogila, a strategic piece of high ground about 30 km (20 miles) from where the Malaysia Airlines Boeing hit the ground on July 17. Experts are due to renew their efforts on Monday to reach the crash site, still in rebel-held territory.

Many of the 15 nations represented at the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) lie barely a metre (three feet) above sea level, and regard themselves as the frontline of climate change, an issue they say threatens their very existence. While emissions controls and carbon footprints can seem like abstract concepts in the climate debate, Palau President Tommy Remengesau said Pacific island nations were already facing the reality of global warming. "Climate change is causing the seas to rise at unprecedented rates, increasing the intensity of storms and threatening to wipe entire states off the map," he told the United Nations earlier this year.
