    MINSK, March 24 (RIA Novosti) - The first three buses carrying protesters arrested after an opposition rally was broken up Friday morning in Minsk are on their way to courts in the Belarusian capital.

    Every bus is carrying about 15 people, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

    Police early Friday morning dispersed an opposition demonstration that had been going on in Minsk's central square since Monday.

    They were protesting the official landslide victory of incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko with 83%, and calling for fresh elections.
