Three Russian opposition activists have been detained as they travelled to Belarus to observe a tense presidential election.
President Alexander Lukashenko is facing the strongest opposition yet to his leadership.
He is expected to declare victory after Sunday’s elections, his sixth in 25 years.
But the opposition says it will fight the election results in court.
