26 February 2014 Last updated at 16:30 GMT

Pro-Russian demonstrators clashed with Crimean Tatars and supporters of Ukraine's interim leaders in the city of Simferopol on Wednesday.

The pro-Moscow protesters gathered in front of parliament in the Crimean capital to protest against politicians in Kiev who are trying to form a new government.

One person died, probably from a heart attack, during the face-off.

Mark Lowen and Daniel Sandford report from the police cordon separating the two rallies.
