Second Ukrainian protester is shot dead as violent clashes with police continue in the capital Kiev.
Three people were killed on Wednesday in the Ukrainian capital Kiev during clashes between anti-government protesters and riot police.
Two of the dead men perished from bullet wounds, said Ukraine's general prosecutor, and the third died after plunging from the top of Dynamo football stadium while fighting with police.
Video footage showed one of the shot dead lying on the stretcher in a makeshift hospital as a priest was reading a prayer over his dead body.
These are the first protest-related deaths since the crisis erupted last November after Yanukovich ditched a trade deal with the European Union in favor of financial aid from Russia.
The protesters, inflamed by news of the deaths, faced off again with riot police, whom they have battled in bloody clashes near the government headquarters since late Sunday.
Fifty people were detained overnight and 29 of them officially charged with taking part in mass unrest, said police.
A total of 167 police have been injured.
There is no word on the number of civilians injured.
