'Protest sniper' in Kiev media hotel

The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse said he saw what was almost certainly a protester shooting out of a window.

In the bloodiest day of clashes yet, at least 21 anti-government protesters died in Kiev on Thursday.

Officials said that one policeman had also died.

Snipers were reported to have fired on protesters, and some armed demonstrators were also reported to be firing towards security forces.

Reporting for Newsnight, Gabriel Gatehouse said he saw what looked like a protester shooting out of a window at the BBC's Kiev base, the Ukraine Hotel.
