Ukrainian president Yanukovych and opposition sign EU-mediated truce

In Ukraine, President Viktor Yanukovych and leaders from the opposition signed a political agreement aimed at resolving months of unrest and violence inside the country. President Yanukovych agreed to a number of concessions including early actions, changes to the constitution which would limit the president's power and the formation of a national unity government.
