Galvanized into action by the violence on the ground. Ministers went further, they will freezethe assets of those they deem to be responsible for human rights violations and restrict theirtravel to the EU. Exactly who will be on that list will be worked out in the coming days, but it willfocus on Ukrainian government officials. Meanwhile, in Kiev, the German, French and Polishforeign ministers held lengthy meetings with both the president and opposition officials. It isclear they are working on some kind of settlement that would see both sides pull back.

Violence erupted in Kiev this morning following a brief over-night truce. Three hours of fiercefighting in the city's Independence Square left bodies strewn on the ground. Wounded peoplewere given first aid in the Ukraine Hotel where many foreign correspondents are based includingthe BBC's Duncan Crawford.

“Every now and again, you hear loud bangs, the odd explosion, possibly the odd shot beingfired, so we have just moved to a different position just for precaution. Earlier on, bodies weretaken out to the lobby of our hotel which had become a makeshift hospital and they wereparaded into Independence Square where people were shouting out‘hero’, we know there havebeen a large number of fatalities today. We know that the protesters blamed the riot police forthose deaths.”

Two years ago, a court trying the former death camp guard John Demjanjuk, decided that hewas guilty of being an accessory to murder simply by being a worker at the camp. This meantthat the court didn't have to prove an active participation in killing to find someone guilty ofmurder. That open the way for more prosecutions. And today's raids are the results. At leastthree of those arrested were alleged to have been guards at Auschwitz between 1942 and 1945when 1.5 million people were killed in what amounted to an industrial system of murder.
