    Video shows riot police in Minsk bursting through an apartment in the city searching for protesters who had been seeking refuge after officers used stun grenades at an anti-government rally in defiance at the regime of Alexander Lukashenko, who continues to hold on to power despite two months of mass protests since he declared victory in the presidential election in August. The footage, filmed on Sunday and later posted to social media, shows a policeman beating a man who was draped with Belarus’ red-and-white flag, the symbol adopted by the opposition, with a baton. Police detained at least three other men, while several others more people were sheltering on the upper floors of the building, a witness said.  Officials in Belarus detained more than 500 people at nationwide anti-government protests on Sunday, including 160 in the capital Minsk, the Interior Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
