Kiev mayor Leonid Chernovetsky has abandoned a plan by authorities in the Ukrainian capital to build a hotel on a killing field in the Babi Yar massacre, Army Radio reported Saturday. Controversy erupted as Jewish group condemned the plan on Thursday, days before the 68th anniversary of the killing of more than 30,000 Jews in late September 1941. Legislators loyal to Chernovetsky had approved a plan last week to build dozens of hotels in the city over the next decade, including one across the street from a monument commemorating the victims.
