All arrested Ukraine protesters released: prosecutor

KIEV (AFP) - Ukraine's attorney general said Friday all 234 protesters who were arrested in anti-government unrest rocking the country had been released - as demanded by the opposition - but charges against them remained.

"234 people were arrested between December 26 and February 2. None of them are in custody anymore," said Viktor Pshonka, adding that charges against them would be dropped if buildings currently occupied by protesters were evacuated.
