Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych says he has agreed a truce with opposition leaders, after at least 26 people died in clashes this week.

In a statement, he said "negotiations" would now start to end the bloodshed of the last two days.

Fires are continuing to burn around the Maidan, but no violence is reported.

Most of the victims died during the clashes near the parliament building in the capital and later police attempts to clear the Maidan on Tuesday - making it the bloodiest day since the unrest erupted in late November.
