KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - An Associated Press reporter has seen the bodies of several protesters at the edge of the protest encampment in downtown Kiev.
A medic for the protesters, Bohdan Soloviy, says eight protesters were killed by gunfire on Thursday as demonstrators tried to take control of a building near the encampment.
Thursday's violence came hours after the country's embattled president and top opposition leaders met and called for a truce and negotiations.
