Ukraine: minority outraged at police operation

Three people have been taken to hospital after clashes between Crimean Tatars and Ukrainian police. They had been protesting over the demolition of buildings the authorities had declared illegal.

Police used bulldozers to tear down the buildings on a protected mountain site near the Black Sea.

Twenty-eight Tatars who tried to resist the police were detained.

The clash followed a court ruling that a restaurant and six other structures had been built unlawfully.

It's the latest in a series of disputes over land ownership between ethnic Tartars and Ukrainians in recent months.
