Several protestors detained outside Belarusian KGB building in Minsk
Five people have been detained during the "Patriot, Not a Criminal" unauthorized protest outside the Belarusian State Security Committee (KGB) building, an Interfax correspondent reported.
Some activists have come up to the building in sign of solidarity with those detained earlier. Police are checking documents and inspecting everyone going inside the building and telling people not to stand near it.
Police have detained Pavel Severinets, co-chairman of the organizing committee of the Belarusian Christian Democracy party, and at least four other activists.
It was reported that on March 22 the KGB detained 26 White Legion and Young Front activists on suspicion of participation in mass disturbances.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said earlier that he suspected a fifth column of an attempt to destabilize the domestic situation and stage a so-called "color revolution" in the republic.
