Belarus: 1 dead after night of violent protests
Special forces units intervene in unauthorized demonstrations in Minsk

By Ali Cura

MINSK (AA) – Belarus's Interior Ministry announced Tuesday that a protestor died in demonstrations after President Alexander Lukashenko won a sixth term in office.

The ministry said special forces units intervened in the unauthorized demonstrations in the capital Minsk and that demonstrators and security forces frequently confronted each other.

The protestor lost his life after an explosive went off in his hand which he was trying to throw at security forces.

Those who protested against the uncertain results in the presidential election continued their unauthorized demonstrations throughout the night despite police intervention.

The protestors resisted the security forces by throwing Molotov cocktails and stones. They also set up barricades made of iron bars and garbage cans on some streets and burned car tires.

Despite frequent intervention by security forces using tear gas and stun grenades, the protesters failed to disperse.

There were injuries in the clashes between the police and demonstrators, and many protesters were also detained.
