Anti-government protesters clash with riot police outside Ukraine's parliament in Kiev, Ukraine, Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014. Ukraine's political crisis escalated sharply Tuesday, with 70 protesters reported killed and scores injured in violent, often fiery battles between anti-government demonstrators and police in Kiev. The clashes outside parliament erupted after the opposition accused the government of ignoring its demands even after nearly three months of protests that have paralyzed the capital. It was the worst violence since the protests began in late November. (Efrem Lukatsky / ASSOCIATED PRESS)
