Belarusian police fired warning shots into the air on Sunday as tens of thousands of protesters took to the capital of Minsk as calls continue for President Alexander Lukashenko to step down.

According to local reports, there were at least two separate columns of protesters in Minsk, one of which numbered 20,000 people.

People were seen detained by police during the protests, while others could be seen on camera running away from riot police. This week, Lukashenko said that any protesters who lay a hand on officers should “at least leave without hands.”
