Belarus police have arrested more than 200 people in the capital, Minsk, during the latest anti-government protests ignited by a disputed presidential election in August, human rights activists have said.
Thousands took to the streets on Sunday, and police used stun grenades to disperse crowds, several Belarusian media outlets reported.
The Vesna-96 rights group said 205 people had been detained so far.
The interior ministry later confirmed that there had been arrests, saying those being held had been “disturbing public order and resisting police officers,” but it did not give any numbers.
