At least 100,000 protesters gather in Belarusian capital, police detain 250

Sept 13 (Reuters) - At least 100,000 Belarusian anti-government protesters flooded the centre of Minsk on Sunday, a Reuters eyewitness said, and police detained around 250 people, the Interfax news agency cited the Interior Ministry as saying.

Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko is facing a groundswell of public anger after declaring a landslide win at last month's presidential election that his opponents say was rigged. Lukashenko denies these allegations. (Writing by Tom Balmforth; editing by Katya Golubkova)
