DONETSK, Ukraine, July 21 (Reuters) - Loud explosions were heard in the centre of the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk on Monday, a Reuters witness said.

Donetsk is at the heart of a rebel uprising against rule by Kiev and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has vowed to retake the city as part of what Kiev calls its "anti-terrorist operation" against the separatists.
