BELARUS EXPELS JOURNALISTS, WITHDRAWS ACCREDITATION IN CRACKDOWN

Authorities in Belarus have deported some foreign journalists reporting in the country and withdrawn the accreditation of many Belarusian reporters covering massive anti-government protests that erupted after a disputed presidential election earlier this month.

Ahead of another protest planned for Sunday, the Belarusian Association of Journalists said at least 17 journalists were stripped of their accreditation, issued by the foreign ministry.

Among them were a video journalist and a photographer from Reuters news agency, two from the BBC, and four from Radio Liberty.

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets in recent weeks, rejecting President Alexander Lukashenko’s landslide victory in the August 9 vote, which his opponents say was rigged.

Several people have been killed and hundreds more wounded during a violent police crackdown, with thousands of protesters detained.
