Belarusian police detain dozens of protesters - witness

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Belarusian police detained dozens of protesters in central Minsk on Sunday, a witness said.

Tens of thousands of people were marching through the streets of the capital, demanding that President Alexander Lukashenko step down nearly a month after he won a disputed presidential election.

Earlier policemen were seen beating a protester, the witness said.
