Belarus opposition leader ‘snatched from street’ in Minsk

The leading Belarus opposition politician Maria Kolesnikova has been “snatched from the street” in Minsk and driven away in a minivan.

Two other opposition figures who worked with her have also disappeared.

Ms Kolesnikova was the most prominent critic of President Lukashenko to have remained inside the country.

This programme has footage of her filmed on Sunday as ten of thousands of anti-government protestors marched in Minsk – and we have this report.
