Minsk police have detained a number of moderators of online opposition communities, including Raman Pratasevich, Andrei Tkachou, Siarhei Biaspaly and Pavel Yeutsikheyeu.

Pavel Yeutsikheyeu was detained after his apartment was visited by policemen and plainclothes KGB agents. He was then taken to the police department. His personal computer was also seized.

The detentions reportedly deal with online communities of the Russian social network Vkontakte.
