Large crowds are expected to turn out in Belarus for the seventh consecutive Sunday of protests against authoritarian leader Alexander Lukashenko. On Saturday, police in the capital Minsk made dozens of arrests at a women’s’ march denouncing his re-election in a vote that many say was rigged.

The opposition is set to symbolically inaugurate Svetlana Tsikhanovskaya in response.
