Ukraine crisis: Opposition asserts authority in Kiev

MPs have replace the parliamentary speaker and attorney general, appointed a new pro-opposition interior minister and voted to free jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko.
Police appear to have abandoned their posts across the capital.
Protesters in Kiev have walked unchallenged into the president's official and residential buildings.
President Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leaders signed a peace deal on Friday after several days of violence in which dozens of people died in a police crackdown on months of protest.
But the deal failed to end the protests and huge crowds remain in Independence Square, the Maidan.
The opposition have called for elections before 25 May, earlier than envisaged in Friday's peace deal.
