Belarus Election and Protests, from The Filter^:
During the police crackdown in Minsk (Day 5) a Canadian journalist for the Montral newspaper, La Presse, was arrested and jailed for 15 days (Yahoo! news). Frederick Lavoie, 23, has been given food and toiletries by British officials but his exact treatment is unkown.
Lavoie was in Minsk to cover the Presidential election, and staying with a Belarussian called Sergei - who has himself been on the frontline of the unfolding action. Sergei has kindly (and bravely) agreed to share his information with The Filter^, and he has sent us several photographs of the March 25th proests.
