Parliament in Ukraine has named its speaker as interim president.

Oleksander Turchynov takes charge following the dismissal of President Viktor Yanukovych yesterday.

Turchynov told MPs they had until Tuesday to form a new unity government.

Parliament also voted to seize Yanukovych's luxury estate near Kiev, which protesters entered yesterday.

The whereabouts of Yanukovych, who described parliament's decision to vote him out as a coup, remain unclear.

Thousands of protesters remain in Independence Square where the atmosphere is described as calm.
