DONETSK, Ukraine - Reuters journalists near Donetsk international airport in eastern Ukraine heard sustained gunfire in the vicinity and saw smoke billowing from somewhere inside the perimeter 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.
