More than 100 arrests in Belarus protests | DW News

Police in the Belarusian capital Minsk have again arrested scores of anti-government protesters. They were taking part in yet another mass demonstration to demand President Alexander Lukashenko step down. Lukashenko’s opponents defied a police ban to stage a massive anti-government rally on the strongman’s birthday. Opposition sources estimated some 100,000 protesters marched through the Belarusian capital. Many of the participants carried placards mocking Lukashenko, who turned 66 on Sunday.
