Belarus: Protesters rally against closer Russia

More than 1,000 people took to the streets of Belarus on Saturday to protest against closer ties with Russia as President Vladimir Putin hosted his Belarusian counterpart, Alexander Lukashenko, in the Russian city of Sochi.

Frustrated by the apparent ties between the two nations, crowds gathered and headed towards the government headquarters in Minsk brandishing signs that read "It's not integration, it's an occupation" and "The president is selling our country."

A number of demonstrators waved European Union flags or those of the opposition. Police were quickly on the scene but made no arrests.
