KIEV (Reuters) - One civilian has been killed and two wounded in shelling of the Kiev-held town of Avdiyivka in east Ukraine, the head of Donetsk regional police Vyacheslav Abroskin said in a Facebook post on Sunday.

“For two days rebels were killing Avdiyivka. In fact they were destroying it ... The town is without electricity and running water. One young man was killed and two women seriously wounded,” he said.

Earlier on Sunday, steelmaker Metinvest it had halted production at its Avdiyivka facility, one of Europe’s biggest coke plants, after heavy shelling on Saturday caused major damage.
