'This Is Something That We're Monitoring'; White House Unsure if Kiev Impacts America
Ukraine Forces Fire on Protesters, White House 'Outraged' (ABC News)
Ukrainian security forces fired live ammunition at protesters today, triggering a statement by an "outraged" White House that demanded officials withdraw police and warned the Ukrainian military to not get involved.
At least 33 people died today after clashes flared up again in Kiev -- a deadly escalation of violence in the Ukrainian capital one day after a truce was negotiated. The death toll is now at least 59, the Associated Press reported.
"We are outraged by the images of Ukrainian security forces firing automatic weapons on their own people," the White House said today.
