DONETS---Rockets slammed into a
high-security prison yesterday in the
rebel-held city of Donetsk, igniting a
riot that allowed more than 100 pris-
oners to flee, authorities in eastern
Donetsk city council spokesman
Maxim Rovinsky said a direct rocket hit
killed at least one inmate and left three
others severely wounded. In the chaos,
he said 106 prisoners escaped, included
some jailed for murder, robbery and
In the past week Ukrainian govern-
ment forces have intensified their mil-
itary operations and surrounded Donet-
sk, the largest city in rebel-held eastern
Ukraine. Exchanges of rocket fire and
deaths from shelling have become a fea-
ture of daily life and hundreds of thou-
sands have chosen to flee.
The prison break became possible
after a substation providing the building
with electricity was damaged, disabling
the facility s alarm system.
"Extremely dangerous prisoners are
now free. It is hard to know the extent
of threat this poses to the city, which
is flooded with weapons," Rovinsky said.
Rebels routinely accuse government
forces of using heavy artillery in their
campaign to retake Donetsk.
But Ukrainian security spokesman
Andriy Lysenko blamed the prison strike
on separatist fighters.
"Bandits in Donetsk shelled residential
quarters and correctional facility No
124," he said.
Prisoners said the rocket hit their
building late Sunday night.
"At around 10 pm, after lights went
out and the prisoners began heading to
their sleeping quarters, a rocket hit this
place," said one prisoner, who gave his
name as Vova Kordemansky.
"Nobody was in this room, but one
guy downstairs had his head blown off."
Officials with Ukraine s state peni-
tentiary service said 34 prisoners had
returned to the jail. It was not imme-
diately possible to verify that claim.
One of the prisoners who had appar-
ently returned to the prison told the
Associated Press that inmates were
forced to flee to avoid incoming rockets,
but were apprehended in a nearby neigh-
Both Ukrainian government forces
and the pro-Russian rebels who want
independence for their eastern region

lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who is
engaged to George Clooney, on Mon-
day pulled out of an appointment to
serve on a UN commission on possible
violations of the rules of war in Gaza.
The president of the 47-nation UN
Human Rights Council announced in a
statement Monday that Alamuddin had
been appointed on the commission, but
the increasingly high-profile British-
Lebanese lawyer later said she could
not accept the role.
"I was contacted by the UN about
this for the first time this morning," she
said. "I am honoured to have received
the offer, but given existing commit-
ments---including eight ongoing cases---
unfortunately could not accept this role."
It wasn t immediately clear what
caused the confusion or if someone else
would replace her. Other members of
the commission include Canada s
William Schabas, an international law
professor at Middlesex University, who
will be the chair, and Doudou Diene of
Senegal, a lawyer who has filled UN
posts on racism and human rights in

UN Watch called on Schabas to recuse
himself from the commission because
