DONETSK, Ukraine - There are renewed concerns over whether last week's international agreement aimed at easing the crisis in Ukraine can succeed.

Today, Ukraine's acting president is ordering security forces to resume operations in the country's east. This, as the bodies of two people allegedly abducted by pro-Russian insurgents were found. The acting president says they showed signs of torture.

And the Defense Ministry says a military aircraft was struck by gunfire over one of the tensest cities in the region.

Last week's agreement calls for all sides to refrain from violence and for demonstrators to vacate public buildings. Pro-Russia insurgents in eastern Ukraine have rejected the agreement, arguing they were not party to it.
