Sources together with human rights teams have instructed Euronews that at the least 283 individuals have been detained by police as anti-government protests continued throughout Belarus on Sunday.

Demonstrations have now been happening for 16 consecutive weeks, attracting hundreds of individuals, calling for president Alexander Lukashenko to resign.

Safety forces have habitually used stun grenades, tear fuel and mass arrests in makes an attempt to discourage the protests.

There have been near-daily protests since early August, however these on Sundays have been the biggest, notably within the capital Minsk.

The rallies began after the presidential election on August 9 that gave a sixth time period in workplace to Alexander Lukashenko, in keeping with official outcomes.

However the opposition and a few ballot staff say votes have been manipulated and protesters are calling on the president to step down.

On Sunday demonstrators tried to dilute detentions and dispersals by initially gathering in numerous components of the capital Minsk, however they have been met by police after they tried to converge to the centre.
