[December 03, 2013]  KIEV, Ukraine (AP) Ukraine's opposition has failed in its attempt to force out the government with a no-confidence vote in parliament.

The failure leaves Ukraine's political tensions unresolved, with opposition demonstrators still angered by the president's shelving of an agreement with the European Union and by police violence against protesters denouncing that decision.

The dispute has brought crowds as big as 300,000 to the streets of Kiev, the largest outpouring of public anger since the 2004 Orange Revolution.
