More than 100 protesters arrested in Belarus

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Police in the capital of Belarus arrested more than 100 people who assembled for a protest march on Saturday to call for the resignation of the country’s authoritarian president. The planned event in Minsk indicated that supporters of the political opposition seek to revive the wave of mass protests that gripped Belarus for months last year but were dormant during the winter. During the first sizable anti-government protests of 2021, more than 200 people were detained Thursday. More details in Monday’s Borneo Bulletin.
