Leaders Take A Break After All-Night Talks In Minsk

The Ukrainian, Russian, German and French leaders left the negotiating room after spending all night locked in talks in Minsk, Belarus, aimed at securing a cease fire in eastern Ukraine. The leaders had a brief break in the meeting, which has now resumed. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was quoted as saying Russia's position was unacceptable. The UN says more than 5,000 people have been killed in fighting between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian government forces. (Reuters)
