Deadly protests in Kiev

An Orthodox priest blesses the bodies of anti-government protestors, shot dead during an advance on police lines outside Independence Square in central Kiev. The riot police responded with gunfire that, according to the opposition, killed at least 70 and as many as 100 people. The drastic escalation of the three-month-old Ukraine crisis left the country reeling from the most lethal violence in decades.
