KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - At least three civilians were killed in overnight fighting in eastern Ukraine and government troops pressed ahead with their campaign against pro-Russian rebels, taking a strategic point close to where Malaysian flight MH17 crashed, officials said on Monday. Russia accuses Kiev of responsibility. Kiev said on Monday its troops recaptured Savur Mogila, a strategic piece of high ground about 30 km (20 miles) from where the Malaysia Airlines Boeing hit the ground on July 17. Experts are due to renew their efforts on Monday to reach the crash site, still in rebel-held territory.
