Ukrainian riot police move on protesters occupying Kiev square

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian riot police started to move into Kiev’s Independence Square late on Tuesday, pushing back anti-government protesters whose tents were burning, local television showed.

Live television footage showed riot police throwing stun grenades at protesters separated from them by a line of burning tents, tyres and wood.
