BELARUS / SWEDEN / LITHUANIA : Police Arrest Student In Teddy Bear Protest.


      Be very afraid of protesting Swedish teddy bears!
      That's the thrust of what the secret police in Belarus believe.
      They have arrested a 20-year-old journalism student...after he published a photo of teddy bears carrying protest slogans...on his website.
     They have jailed Anton Suryapin...who could face a charge of 'border violation' and 7 years in prison...as an accomplice in a 'Swedish teddy bear' plot...that had hundreds of tiny protest teddy bears dropped into Belarus.
