Belarusian authorities have resumed arresting protesters in the capital, Minsk, where students have taken to the streets against President Alexander Lukashenko. Al Jazeera quotes local media as saying that at least 18 students were arrested as police moved to break up the crowd. Belarusian prosecutors have also opened a criminal probe against the opposition Coordination Council, accusing its members of undermining the country’s security and last week, the country’s courts handed 10-day jail sentences to two council members and summoned several others for questioning, including Svetlana Alexievich, the 2015 Nobel literature laureate.
