AP Security forces clashed with protesters as they began tearing down opposition barricades and tents set up in the centre of the Ukrainian capital early Wednesday, in an escalation of the weeks-long standoff threatening the leadership of President Viktor Yanukovych. Several thousand police in riot gear used their shields to push back protesters and successfully removed some of their tents and barricades.
