An anti-government protester throws a Molotov cocktail towards riot police Saturday at the site of clashes in Kiev, Ukraine. Demonstrators took to the streets on Nov. 21 after Ukraine shunned ties with the European Union in favor of a bond bailout from Russia. The protests had been largely peaceful, but flared into violence after the country rushed through a new law effectively banning peaceful demonstrations.
