Shots fired at Ukrainian base in Crimea

BELBEK AIR BASE, Crimea (AP) - An Associated Press journalist says shots have been fired at a Ukrainian air force base in Crimea that has been blocked off by Russian forces.

It was not immediately clear if there were any casualties in the Saturday gunfire at the Belbek base near the port city of Sevastopol.

A webcam from the base showed two armored vehicles at the base's gate and an ambulance entering the grounds.

Russian forces have been seizing Ukrainian military facilities for several days in the Black Sea peninsula, which voted a week ago to secede and join Russia.
