KIEV, Ukraine (AP) A spokesman for Ukraine's national security council says "dozens" of civilians have been killed in a rebel attack on a convoy of people trying to flee war-torn eastern Ukraine.

Col. Andriy Lysenko told reporters Monday that he is unable to provide exact figures but that dozens have died, including children.

The barrage took place between the towns of Khryashchuvate and Novosvitlivka, which lie on the main road leading to Russia from the besieged rebel-held city of Luhansk.

The separatist rebels fighting Ukrainian troops have not yet commented on the government's statement.
