Dozens of MPs in Ukraine have been involved in a fist fight in the country's parliament.

Supporters of President Viktor Yanukovych were attempting to end a sit-in by opposition deputies, who were protesting against the criminal prosecution of their leader, Yulia Tymoshenko.

An opposition member claimed he and four colleagues had to receive hospital treatment after the fight.
