A freelance Ukrainian journalist who was detained by pro-Russian separatists while working for the US news network CNN has been freed, the broadcaster said Saturday. CNN said news producer Anton Skiba, who was captured by armed men outside a hotel in the rebel-held city of Donetsk on Tuesday, had called them to say that he was "free and that he is fine." "CNN also has had visual confirmation that Skiba is free from sources on the ground in Donetsk," the network said on its online news site. Donetsk is under siege by Ukrainian forces, and fighting continued Saturday, with loud explosions heard in one suburb of the city.
