The city of Lviv in the west of Ukraine remains in the hands of the opposition, after protesters stormed government buildings and security forces surrendered to them.

In the turmoil, the fiance of one activist - Mariya Pohorilko - was killed on Tuesday by a sniper.

She told the BBC's Mark Lowen how their dream had been to marry in a ''free Ukraine''.
