Ukrainian security forces have stormed the "Maidan," the opposition's camp in Kiev city centre, after a two month siege. The BBC reports that an armoured column advanced a few hours after a government ultimatum expired at 6pm local time. The attack came after several people were killed earlier on Tuesday.
