Belarus opposition member detained ahead of presidential election: campaign team
[www.reuters.com]

MINSK (Reuters) - Authorities in Belarus on Saturday detained Maria Kolesnikova, a prominent member of the opposition campaign challenging President Alexander Lukashenko in a presidential election, the campaign team said.

Human rights groups say more than 1,300 people have been detained in a crackdown ahead of Sunday’s election in an attempt to clamp down on street protests that pose the biggest challenge in years to Lukashenko’s rule.

Her and two other women are involved in the campaign against Lukashenko primarily because so many opposition candidates were previously arrested (to be removed from their campaigns against the dictator).
