KIEV: Shots have been fired near the square in central Kiev where protesters are confronting the government.
It is unclear where the shots are coming from or whom they are targeting.
The Interior Ministry accuses the opposition of breaking a shaky truce and firing at law enforcement officers.
The new shots came after the deadliest day of violence in Ukraine since its independence from the Soviet Union, and amid tensions in parliament as lawmakers and European officials try to find a solution to the crisis.
