Ukrainian court asked to detain ex-PM Tymoshenko

KIEV - A state prosecutor asked a court to detain Ukraine's former prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, on Wednesday during a trial on charges that she abused her post during her term, her office said.
The court is due to rule on the prosecution's motion later on Wednesday, according to a statement published on Tymoshenko's website.
Tymoshenko has dismissed all charges against her as politically motivated and Western governments have expressed concern over her case.
