Shelling in Ukraine rebel hub kills Red Cross worker


DONETSK, Ukraine: Shelling in the center of the main rebel-held city in Ukraine’s east killed a Swiss Red Cross worker on Thursday, tearing badly at a weakly observed four-week truce meant to defuse Europe’s worst crisis in decades. The attacks in Donetsk were the first to strike the heart of the city since the signing of the truce on September 5 between Kiev and Moscow. Parts of the eastern coal mining hub – once home to nearly a million Russian speakers but now half-abandoned – were on fire after rockets slammed into a 14-storey central shopping center shortly before 6:00 pm (3:00 pm Manila time).       AFP
