Belarus police have arrested dozens of people during mass protests calling for the Belarusian president to step down. President Alexander Lukashenko claims he was elected to his sixth straight term with more than 80 percent of the vote. His opposition claims he cheated and that they won by a landslide. Across Belarus, protesters gathered in the streets for seven straight weekends of marches. News media have reported Belarusian police have begun hauling demonstrators away in vans, and police have used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse crowds. The U.S. and several European Union countries do not recognize Lukashenko’s election as valid.
