A brick flies past anti-government protesters Tuesday outside Ukraine’s parliament building in Kiev during clashes with riot police trying to break up their sprawling camp. At least 18 people, including seven policemen, were killed and hundreds injured.

Protesters shouted “Glory to Ukraine” as burning tents lit up the night sky after thousands of riot police moved against the sprawling protest camp in the center of Kiev on Tuesday.
