KIEV (Reuters) - Shells hit a cultural center and a trolleybus in separate attacks in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk on Friday, killing at least seven people, the rebel-controlled administration in the city said.

Five people were killed in the strike on the cultural center and at least two died when an artillery shell hit the trolleybus just over 1 km (half a mile) away, it said in a statement on its website.

There was no immediate confirmation of the attacks from the Kiev military side.
