KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine's law enforcement agencies have set a deadline for protesters to end street clashes with police in Kiev, and have vow to restore order.

Ukraine's Security Service and the Interior Ministry issued a joint statement Tuesday, saying that if "disorders" don't stop by 6 p.m. (1600 GMT), the authorities will restore order.

At least four people were reported dead in the clashes Tuesday.
