Here’s what reporters are seeing in Slovyansk

A number of reporters, including The Washington Post's William Booth, are in Slovyansk in eastern Ukraine, where security forces killed "up to five" pro-Russian activists Thursday. Clashes broke out across the eastern part of the country, where there's a stronger tie to Russia than in the west.

Terri Rupar is The Post's national digital projects editor.
