Thousands on streets of Belarus demand resignation of President Lukashenko – BBC News


The largest anti-Government protests since last week’s disputed elections have been taking place in Belarus. It’s estimated that 100,000 people have taken to the streets demanding that President Alexander Lukashenko steps down.

President Lukashenko, who’s been in power for 26 years, has claimed the country is under threat from foreign forces and is refusing to step down.

His opponents accuse him of rigging the presidential election and unleashing a violent crackdown against protesters and political opponents.
