A war of words in Ukraine

Smoke billows above an airfield in eastern Ukraine where a military helicopter has come under fire. The army said Friday that a rocket-propelled grenade destroyed a chopper near the rebel-held city of Slaviansk. No one died in the incident, the latest event in a series of escalations.
