Residents Leaving Slovyansk

Ukrainian government forces battled separatists with artillery and automatic weapons on June 4 as fighting raged for a second straight day in and around the eastern town of Slovyansk, forcing many frightened residents to flee and stay in temporary accomodation in various cities in eastern Ukraine -- in the towns of Nyzhnya Krynka, Ilovaysk, and Makiyivka.
