A Ukrainian court has ordered the arrest of the high-profile opposition politician, and former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko. She's been on trial since June for allegedly exceeding her authority while signing gas deals with Russia in 2009. That was during her time in office as the country's PM. She has been arrested for contempt of court - accused of obstructing the questioning of witnesses. Prosecutors say her alleged crimes cost the country over 150 million dollars. Timoshenko was one of the leaders of the Orange revolution that later plunged the country into political chaos when the alliance broke up. We're hearing that her supporters attacked the police vehicle which took her from court.
