DONETSK, Ukraine (AFP) - Pro-Russian groups on Sunday stormed the local headquarters of Ukraine's SBU security services and the prosecutor's office in the flashpoint eastern city of Donetsk, an AFP reporter witnessed.

Protesters, demanding the release of their self-appointed "governor," attacked the two buildings without meeting much opposition from police, the reporter said.
