Dozens killed in building fire and clashes in Ukraine's Odessa

Scenes of panic and desperation in the Ukrainian city of Odessa. Crowds do their best to rescue lives from a trade union building set ablaze. It was here that dozens of people were killed in a fire. Others were shot dead when fighting broke out on the streets, between pro and anti-Russian groups. Reports say the number dead was at least 40. Police say a pro-Kiev march was ambushed. Petrol bombs, stones and explosive devices were thrown. Police soon lost control, and the building was later set on fire. It's the worst violence seen here since Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovich was ousted in February. And some residents say they fear some people may seek retribution.
