Images show 'bruises' of 'beaten' Ukraine ex-PM Tymoshenko

Images have emerged showing alleged injuries inflicted on former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in prison last week.

Ukraine's opposition says three men punched her in the stomach, but the authorities have denied the allegation.

In October, Ms Tymoshenko was jailed for seven years for abuse of office in a trial condemned by the West as politically motivated.

German politicians have said they may boycott Euro 2012 matches in Ukraine.
