Ukraine protesters clean charred city center
- Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer
Protesters in Ukraine's capital set to work removing charred debris from Kiev's central square after recapturing the area from police.
The square, known as Maidan Nezalezhnosti, was a black, smoldering mess on Thursday. Protests there had escalated in the days prior when police advanced and tried to take over the square, the site where protesters have been camped out for more than two months.
Demonstrators carried fresh supplies into the encampment, rebuilding barricades and preparing for futher violence.
Dozens more were reported dead throughout the day, with amateur video footage emerging showing protesters gunned down by what appeared to be police snipers.
