10 Things to Know for Today from The Associated Press


Looking back at the stories to remember from the past week:


The West threatened the Kremlin with more sanctions while Moscow said Friday that pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine would not lay down their arms until activists relinquished control over key occupied sites in Kiev. Ukraine's deputy foreign minister said he feared an imminent invasion from Russia.


Thursday's attack at Cure International Hospital in Kabul killed Dr. Jerry Umanos, a Chicago pediatrician, and two other Americans who were not immediately identified. Another American was wounded, and the gunman — identified as a government security guard — then shot himself. It was the latest attack on foreigners in Afghanistan that has seen 22 killed this year alone.
