Riot police move in against Kiev protest camp
February 18, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — Defiant protesters shouted “Glory to Ukraine” as burning tents lit up the night sky after thousands of riot police moved against the sprawling protest camp in the center of Kiev on Tuesday.

The police, armed with stun grenades and water cannons, attacked the camp after at least 18 people died and hundreds were injured in street clashes. The violence was the deadliest in nearly three months of anti-government protests that have paralyzed Ukraine’s capital in a struggle over the nation’s identity.

Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko urged the 20,000 protesters to defend the camp on Independence Square.

Early Wednesday morning, government agencies said seven police officers and 11 protesters have died in the violence.
