Ukraine: Pro-Europe demonstrators march through Kiev

Thousands of pro-Europe demonstrators have gathered in Kiev's Independence Square, in defiance of a court order banning protests in the area.

Ukraine has been hit by a wave of protests in response to President Viktor Yanukovych's refusal to sign an EU trade deal.

The BBC's Steve Rosenberg visited Independent Square on Saturday and said there was a "sea of Ukrainian flags, a sea of European Union flags".
