Thousands of people rally against Lukashenko in Minsk

Protests continue in the Belarusian capital. Thousands of people have been rallying in Minsk as well as in other towns.

The demonstrators want Mr Lukashenko to resign after his re-election last month amid allegations of ballot-rigging.

Scenes from the Belarusian capital on September 6 showed massive crowds marching through the city center chanting “Long live Belarus!” and “Shame!”, and carrying red-and-white flags and banners, a symbol of the opposition that has been banned by the authorities.

The protest rally has started on August 9 after President Alexander Lukashenko won more than 80% of the vote.
