KIEV - New clashes broke out on Wednesday between Ukrainian police and protesters demanding the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovich and two demonstrator were reported to have been killed.

Protesters shouted "Murderers!" and "Glory to Ukraine!" in a square in the centre of the capital Kiev after reports spread that a man had been shot dead by a police sniper and that another demonstrator had fallen to his death during clashes.

This was not immediately confirmed by the Ukrainian authorities, but a Reuters cameraman was shown the body of a man identified as a protester who had gunshot wounds to the head.

The latest clashes broke out when police, using teargas, tried to dismantle a protest camp but were repelled by demonstrators hurling home-made petrol bombs, witnesses said.

The demonstrators have been out in the street for several weeks, angered by Yanukovich's decision to shun a trade pact with the European Union and instead accept financial aid from Russia.
