KIEV, January 25 (Itar-Tass) - Three Ukrainian police were seized Friday evening by rioters near Independence Square where a mass opposition rally is still in progress.

The police were reportedly kept for a while in the building of Kiev’s city administration, earlier seized by the opposition protesters.
The wounded police has now been freed and taken to hospital. The two others are unaccounted for.
