Ukraine police smash pro-Europe protest, opposition to call strike
By Richard Balmforth and Thomas Grove KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's political opposition said on Saturday it would call a general strike to force the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovich's government after police used batons and stun grenades to break up pro-Europe protests. Some 10,000 protesters regrouped in Kiev, flooding a square outside a church. Further rallies were planned for Sunday in the capital Kiev and other cities. Helmeted police stormed an encampment in Kiev's Independence Square where protesters were singing and warming themselves by campfires early in the morning, the opposition said.
