Description

In Belarus, tens of thousands of protesters marched through the capital of Minsk, angered over a disputed election and the brutal police crackdown that followed. Police have freed about 2,000 people arrested during demonstrations, but reports of widespread torture of those in custody are driving fresh rage. The European Union is considering sanctions over the crisis. Nick Schifrin has the story. PBS NewsHour is supported by - https://www.pbs.org/newshour/about/funders
