Belarus pulls embassy staff out of Sweden

It comes after hundreds of teddy bears were dropped from a plane over its territory, as part of a pro-democracy stunt organised by Swedish advertising executives.

Sweden has been given until the end of the month to pull its diplomats out of Minsk. However, a foreign ministry statement said Belarus was not severing relations with the Nordic country.
