aKiev Brutality Charge

KIEV, Ukraine -- Ukrainian ultranationalists have accused police of beating an elderly passerby so seriously at one of their demonstrations that he subsequently died in a police van.


"The riot police grabbed him, started hitting him, kicking him and pushing him into the van ... He resisted and they sprayed him with [tear] gas," said the report filed Monday by the Ukrainian National Assembly.


It said that a few minutes later, the 72-year-old man stopped breathing and fell to the van's floor. Police were unavailable for comment Monday.
