MOSCOW (Reuters) - A mortar bomb hit a building used by the International Committee of the Red Cross in Ukraine's separatist-held city of Donetsk on Thursday, killing a Swiss citizen, Russian news agency Interfax quoted the rebels' defense ministry as saying.

A Reuters witness at the scene saw the body of a middle-aged man lying at the entrance to the Red Cross building.
