LONDON (Reuters) - Britain on Thursday called on Belarus to respect the human rights of its people after footage emerged of riot police detaining students.
Junior foreign minister Wendy Morton said she was shocked by BBC footage showing “a very young student being taken away by riot police”.
“The Belarusian authorities must immediately end this violence and uphold the human rights of their people,” she said.
