Kiev: Heavy rockets that killed at least 30 people on Saturday in Ukraine`s government-held port of Mariupol were fired from territory controlled by pro-Russian rebels, international monitors said.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said its inspection team concluded that "the Grad rockets originated from a northeasterly direction... and the Uragan rockets from an easterly direction, both controlled by the `Donetsk People`s Republic`."

The self-proclaimed separatist region`s leader had earlier announced the launch of a major new offensive against Mariupol but did not acknowledge direct responsibility for the rocket attacks.
