RUSSIA: Three people - a teacher and two children - died Tuesday after a man opened fire at a kindergarten school in Russia's central Ulyanovsk region, Agencies reported. "According to preliminary information there was a shooting in a kindergarten. As a result, two children, a teacher and the attacker died," Dmitry Kamal, the head of the Ulyanovsk region's information department said.
