Ukraine president says he will scrap anti-protest law
Ukraine's beleaguered president on Monday agreed to scrap harsh anti-protest laws that set off a wave of clashes between protesters and police over the past week.

 

In a statement on the presidential website, Justice Minister Elena Lukash says that in a meeting with top opposition figures and President Viktor Yanukovych on Monday night, "a political decision was made on scrapping the laws of Jan. 16, which aroused much discussion." (AP)
