Ukraine Protest
Smoke from burning tyres rises over barricades, as protesters carry the coffin of Mikhail Zhiznevsky, 25, one of two protesters who died of gunshot wounds on Wednesday, during commemorate service on Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Sunday Jan. 26, 2014. Ukraine's opposition called off a massive rally planned for Sunday because of the funeral for a protester killed in clashes with police last week, underscoring the rising tensions in the country's two-month political crisis. The opposition contends they were shot by police in an area where demonstrators had been throwing rocks and firebombs at riot police for several days. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsky)
