Protesters and riot police clash in Belarus

Protesters and riot police have clashed in Belarus’s capital Minsk and other cities, after a State TV exit poll said long-time leader Alexander Lukashenko was re-elected in Sunday’s election.

Police used stun grenades, rubber bullets and water cannon.

A human rights group said 1 protester was killed and about 120 arrested.

Mr. Lukashenko won 80% of the vote, according to a preliminary count.

But the main Opposition Leader has refused to recognise the results.
