A powerful explosion on Monday outside Ukraine’s parliament wounded about a dozen protesters and police during clashes over reforms giving greater powers to rebels in the east.

According to an AFP reporter at the scene, several people who were bleeding, including police officers and apparently journalists, were lying on the ground in front of the parliament.

A Reuters TV cameraman at the scene said the grenade was thrown into the crowd.

The reporters said several police were knocked off their feet by the blast. Two policemen were treated for wounds at the scene and there were pools of blood on the street, the Reuters witness said.
