In pictures: The most striking images from Belarus protest

Tens of thousands of protesters again hit the streets of Minsk to demand the resignation of Belarus president, Alexander Lukashenko.

More than 125 people were arrested at Sunday's demonstration, according to police sources, but Ales Bilyatsky, of the Viasna human rights organisation, said in excess of 200 protesters were detained.

The protests were sparked after Lukashenko claimed victory in an August 9 presidential election that critics say was rigged.
