GORLIVKA, Ukraine - About 100 pro-Russian protesters armed with bats and rocks stormed a police station in the east Ukrainian town of Gorlivka on Monday, smashing its windows and grabbing metal shields from police.

An AFP correspondent in the Donetsk region town of nearly 300,000 people said the local police force, which put up almost no resistance to the attack, later swore allegiance to a pro-Russian commander who took charge.
