A Ryanair Plane flying from Greece to Lithuania has been diverted to Minsk, with Belarusian opposition figures saying it was done so that a dissident Journalist on board could be arrested.
The opposition Next Channel on Telegram said its ex-Editor Roman Protasevich had been detained.
Lithuana President Gitanas Nauseda accused Belarus of an abhorrent action and demanded the release of the ex-Editor.
However, Belarus State Media said the plane was diverted because of a bomb scare.
