Opposition supporters in Belarus have clashed with riot police while demonstrating in the capital, Minsk.
Opposition leader Alexander Milinkevich told supporters that they were creating a movement to liberate the country.
Scuffles broke out when police stopped protesters attempting to march to a detention centre, where hundreds of other protesters are believed to be held.
Police also fired smoke grenades in a bid to control the crowd.
Reports say a number of people were arrested, and at least two people were injured and taken to hospital.
Some demonstrators, caught up in the chaos, were overwhelmed with emotion.
