A shell attack killed at least 10 people Wednesday in Donetsk, Ukraine. Reports said the shells hit a school playground and a bus nearby. It was the first day of the school year in Donetsk. No children were killed.

Witnesses and city officials told Reuters news agency the four dead included two teachers and a parent.

The local government accused pro-Russian separatists of the shelling attack.

US Confirms Airstrikes Near Turkey-Syria Border

United States-led airstrikes hit a Syrian border town for a second day, Wednesday. Kurdish fighters also fought to defend the area from Islamic State militants.

The U.S. military confirmed three strikes Wednesday near Kobane, also known as Ayn al Arab. U.S. officials said the attacks destroyed a militant tank, artillery, and an armed vehicle. Several weeks of fighting in the area has forced more than 160,000 people to flee.

US Secret Service Director Resigns

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson announced Wednesday that she will resign. The decision follows reports of another major security concern involving the agency. The Secret Service is responsible for protecting President Barack Obama and his family.

A new report says an armed guard for a private security company got on an elevator with President Obama. The incident reportedly took place during the president's visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta last month.

The guard used a cellphone to take photographs of Mr. Obama. The guard ignored Secret Service orders to stop.

The Secret Service did not know at the time that the guard was carrying a gun. It also later found out that the guard had a criminal record.

Several weeks ago, the Secret Service failed to stop a man with a knife from entering the White House.
