    The UK and EU have banned flights in Belarus airspace and consider further sanctions in response to the arrest of journalist Roman Protasevich.

    Mr Protasevich was arrested after the plane he was on was forced to land in Belarus. A video was later released appearing to show him confessing to organising mass protests – but his father says he believes his son was forced to record it.
