Protests con­tinue

First News - - WORLD NEWS -

Tens of thou­sands of peo­ple have again taken to the streets of Minsk, as tense protests con­tinue against dis­puted elec­tion re­sults. Pres­i­dent Alexan­der Lukashenko says he has no plans to re­sign and de­nies rig­ging the elec­tion so he could win. There were far more riot po­lice at­tend­ing the demon­stra­tions than previous weeks, and the pres­i­den­tial palace is now heav­ily pro­tected with wa­ter can­nons.
