Violence flared as demonstrators tried to march on Ukraines parliament ahead of a crucial debate but were blocked from approaching the building by security forces.

Protesters hurled stones and Molotov cocktails, torching vehicles. They also stormed and set fire to a building belonging to President Viktor Yanukovychs political party. Police replied with stun grenades and rubber bullets, Euronews reports.
