NYT article

Neeka quotes a NYT account of the crackdown, written in a professional, indifferent tone.

For a few minutes, as the police awaited the final command, the demonstrators' loudspeaker worked, and one of their leaders ordered the protesters to sit down and hold hands before the police moved in.

They chanted, shouting "The police are with the people!" and "Truth! Truth! Truth!" but offered no resistance visible to journalists, who were ordered by the police to stand about 50 yards away.


...

Mr. Lukashenko's main challenger, Aleksandr Milinkevich, was not in the camp as the police advanced. He denounced the action after visiting the detention center where the demonstrators were taken.

"This authoritarian government has once again shown its beastly face," he said in a telephone interview. "It has never been able to maintain a dialogue with the society. It knows only the language of violence and lies, and this is why its power is bankrupt."

He said he had no reports of beatings or injuries during the arrests, but added, "I do not know what is going on in the jail."


Well, now we know.
