Minsk authorities search luggage of Ryanair flight

The video shows uniformed Belarus special services and authorities checking passengers luggage and other baggage with sniffer dogs as the passengers disembark from the plane and stand on the tarmac. The video was shot from a window of the plane.

26-year-old Roman Protasevich was detained when the plane was forced to land in Minsk, the Belarusian capital, on route to Vilnius from Athens.

His social media feed from exile has been one of the last remaining independent outlets for news about Belarus since a mass crackdown on dissent last year. Sophia Sapega, a 23-year-old student travelling with him, was also detained.
