DONETSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Reuters journalists near Donetsk international airport in eastern Ukraine heard gunfire and explosions in the vicinity and saw smoke billowing from inside the perimeter as fighter jets flew high overhead on Monday.

On the day after a presidential election, gunmen forced the closure of the airport to flights and took over the terminal, demanding the withdrawal of Ukrainian forces from the facility.
