Cartoon causes Belarus crackdown
According to the Belarusian Association of Journalists, there is suspicion that satirical cartoons on the internet, which cast a hero resembling President Aleksandr Lukashenko, could have caused the raids.
Offices of two independent radio stations, Polish-funded Radio Rahtsiya and EU-backed European Radio were searched, too. A journalist at television broadcaster Belsat said its premises had also been raided.
Two journalists were detained. It comes two days after police dispersed opposition rallies in the capital Minsk.
