Hundreds pay their respects for a 21-year-old nurse killed during a military assault in eastern Ukraine. Witnesses said her car came under fire and that she died on the way to the hospital. She now joins a small but growing list of dead in the region's month-old uprising. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) KRAMATORSK RESIDENT, YELENA, SAYING: "She was just a child. How can one talk about justice? They burned so many people alive in Odessa and then finished them by beating and shooting. They show that, and we just trust and keep waiting for someone to do something to us. We should not wait any longer. People, wake up." As the funeral procession moved through town, angry mourners stomped on the Ukrainian flag that was later torched. Germany's foreign minister said he feared neither side could now control the forces that have been unleashed. He said the conflict has "taken on a dynamic of its own."
