President and protestors agree on truce

The office of Ukraine's embattled president says he and leaders of the country's raging protests have called for a truce.

The brief statement late Wednesday came after President Viktor Yanukovych met with top leaders of the protests that flared into violence on Tuesday that has left at least 26 people dead.

The statement did not give details of what a truce would entail or how it would be implemented.
