Driver Speeds Through Police Checkpoint in Minsk

Dramatic footage shows an unidentified driver speeding through a police checkpoint in Minsk, Belarus.

Dozens of officers can be seen surrounding the vehicle as they begin to beat the windows with batons, before pulling one person from the car.

The driver managed to escape, speeding off against the normal flow of traffic.

According to local media, the driver was later arrested.

Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko was sworn in to his sixth term in office after weeks of huge demonstrations against the authoritarian leader's reelection, which the opposition claims was rigged.
