The bloodiest day in the three month uprising in Ukraine has brought the death toll from the clashes to 26 dead, including 10 police officers and a journalist, according to Ukraine's Health Ministry. With violence erupting in central Kiev and no clear end in sight, hospitals in the capital city are flooding with the injured, leading anti-government protesters to use the historic St. Michael's Golden-Domed Cathedral as a temporary hospital. We've collected tweets from the scene in the landmark church. Tweets and images have not been independently verified by NBC News.
