  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Europe’s move: What response after Belarus diverts Ryanair flight?” – below is their description.

    It is enough to hijack the agenda of an #EU summit. A supposed bomb threat was the pretext for forcing a Ryanair flight to land in #Belarus, where authorities could then pluck an independent #journalist from the plane. What kind of a precedent is set by the scrambling of military jets to force a commercial carrier to land? What is Europe going to do about it?
