Aftermath of clashes in Ukraine

Protesters are still demonstrating on a road leading to the Ukrainian parliament, following a protest on Sunday which led to two nights of clashes with police.
Demonstrators have been camped out in Kiev since late November, angered by the government's ties to Moscow and its rejection of a planned treaty with the EU.
An array of new anti-protest laws, hastily passed by parliament last week, will come into force on Wednesday.
