U.S. issues travel alert for Ukraine on deadliest day of protests
U.S. travelers in Ukraine are advised to keep a low profile and stay inside at night to avoid deadly violence between protesters and anti-riot police that erupted in Kiev's Independence Square on Tuesday. Americans in the country's capital should "leave those areas or prepare to remain indoors, possibly for several days, should clashes occur," according to the State Department alert.
