Eight protesters slain in Kiev clashes
(02-20 16:51)

An Associated Press reporter has seen the bodies of several protesters at the edge of the protest encampment in downtown Kiev.
A medic for the protesters, Bohdan Soloviy, says eight protesters were killed by gunfire today as demonstrators tried to take control of a building near the encampment.
The violence came hours after the country's embattled president and top opposition leaders met and called for a truce and negotiations.
Despite a truce called by Ukraine's protest leaders and the president they aim to oust, street fighting between protesters and police in the center of Kiev continued.
Police said 20 officers were wounded by gunfire in the capital, and were receiving treatment.
