Today at about 18:40 an APC (aka BMP infantry fighting vehicle) with pro-Russian rebels lost control in one of the streets of Lugansk and smashed a cafe. Only two hours later the emergency service was able to get 4 bodies out. 2 people were wounded. At 22:08 they managed to take APC out with the help of a crane.
People who got killed were sitting at the tables outside in front of a cafe, wounded people were inside the building that was also damaged. There were 2 APCs, but another one left the place of an accident, they were driving at high speed ignoring traffic lights. A crowd of about hundred people immediately was there. Some of the locals were angrily screaming at the terrorists who got to the place and secured the area. But there were a lot of militia on army trucks, so there were no protests, people were just watching. No OSCE observers have been seen at the place.
The accident happened on Lokomotyvna St. 34 on the East of Lugansk at these coordinates 48.574310, 39.401280. You can view Panorama photo of the street at Yandex Map here
