Belarus hijacks Ryanair passenger plane en route to Lithuania with fighter jet by forcing it to land ‘after fake bomb threat so opposition blogger can be hauled off, arrested and left facing the DEATH penalty’.

Protasevich, 26, is wanted in Belarus on charges of extremism and of organising mass riots and inciting social hatred after he broadcast footage of the huge anti-regime protests via the Telegram messenger app last year – allegations which he denies. If convicted, the blogger could be sentenced to death.

Even going after bloggers!
