KIEV, Ukraine — Protesters threw rocks and firebombs at lines of police on Thursday after government snipers shot into crowds of protesters, killing perhaps dozens of people and shattering a truce that was mere hours old.

Protesters told CNN that at least 100 people were killed so far today. The Ukraine Interior ministry says 67 police were captured by protesters in Kiev.

Video footage on Ukrainian television showed protesters leading captured police officers around a protest camp in central Kiev.
