Protesters storm governors' offices in Ukraine
Enraged protesters stormed government offices in three western Ukraine cities Thursday, forcing one governor to write a letter of resignation, as demonstrations against the pro-Russian president and his allies intensified outside the smoldering capital.

 

Kiev, the capital, has been the epicenter of two months of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych that have grown increasingly violent this week. Opposition leaders gave Yanukovych a deadline of Thursday evening to make concessions or face renewed clashes, quenching the barricade fires that had coated the capital in black smoke in a tenuous cease-fire.
