Ukraine's interior minister says one security officer has been killed and five others have been wounded in a gunfight with pro-Russian militia.
   
Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post Sunday the Security Service officer was killed in Slovyansk where a police station was seized by camouflaged armed men.
   
An Associated Press reporter on the ground didn't see any unrest there when he arrived.
   
The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest signs of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population.
