Ukraine detains 12 riot police on suspicion of 'mass murder'
Twelve members of Ukraine's disbanded 'Berkut' riot police have been detained on suspicion of shooting peaceful participants in Kiev's months-long anti-government protests, a spokesman for the General Prosecutor said on Thursday.


More than 100 people were killed, most by police snipers, on the streets of the capital in the run-up to the ouster of Viktor Yanukovich on Feb. 21 and the 'Berkut' force have largely been considered responsible. (Reuters)
