Death toll from violent protest in Ukraine rises to 3

KIEV(Ukraine): In the worst outburst of violence in Kiev since the new government took power in 2014, nationalist protesters clashed with police and National Guard troops outside Ukraine’s parliament on Monday as lawmakers took up a measure to give greater powers to Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine.

About 140 people were hospitalized, most of them law enforcement officers, the interior ministry said. One National Guard officer died on Monday, and a second died early on Tuesday, both as a result of injuries caused by a grenade explosion, interior minister Arsen Avakov said.

The National Guard reported another death in the early afternoon, saying that the third man died after a day in coma.
