An anti-government protester shoots an improvised weapon during clashes with riot police in Independence Square in Kiev on Thursday. Facing Ukraine police officers armed with combat weapons, dozens were killed in a bloody battle for control of central Kiev Thursday. Protests began peacefully last year but have been increasingly characterized by smaller, more extreme elements who have clashed with riot police.
