By Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The bitter ideological feud tearing at the Republican Party boiled over on Thursday as the U.S. Congress considered a bipartisan budget deal with angry recriminations between the Republicans' top elected leader and the powerful conservative organizations that have been tormenting him for years. Republican House Speaker John Boehner said the outside groups had stepped over a line and "lost credibility" in fighting the deal. The president of FreedomWorks, one of the Tea Party-oriented organizations attacked by Boehner, responded that conservatives have had it with "old bulls" who "miss the old ways of doing things" in Congress.

Ukraine's opposition called Thursday for a mass weekend rally, as pro-European demonstrators sought to increase the pressure on President Viktor Yanukovych following a failed police raid. "We invite everyone to come to our rally at midday on Sunday," said opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk, as protestors on Kiev's iconic Independence Square marked three weeks of demonstrations over the government's decision to reject a historic EU deal. Yanukovych remains under intense pressure after riot police Wednesday failed to shift thousands of demonstrators from Independence Square. Yanukovych's refusal to sign an integration deal with the EU has plunged the ex-Soviet country into its deepest political crisis in a decade.
