Funeral service of protester found dead in wood outside Kiev

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Residents of Lviv in western Ukraine attended funeral service on Friday for the opposition activist Yuri Verbitsky. He was injured in clashes in central Kiev and taken to a hospital along with another activist Igor Lutsenko. Later they were taken away from the hospital by unknown men. Lutsenko was beaten up and later released. He is said to be back in the hospital. But Verbitsky has been found dead in a wood near Kiev Borispol airport with signs of torture. The Cathedral was packed with people, and many were queuing outside to pay tribute to Verbitsky. At least three other protesters have been killed so far - two from gunshot wounds - after clashes between protesters led by a hard core of radicals and riot police.
