Wedding couple take to Kiev barricades amid protest

A newly-married couple have climbed to the top of a protest barricade in central Kiev to celebrate their wedding.

Anti-government protesters have been occupying areas of the Ukrainian capital for several weeks after the government's rejection of a planned treaty with the EU.

The crisis escalated this week when two activists were shot dead during clashes near the main protest camp on Kiev's Independence Square.

The couple said they were taking to the barricades to show support for the opposition struggle.
