'Where is my husband?' asks wife of Belarus candidate


Hundreds of people have been arrested in Belarus in demonstrations against the results of Sunday's presidential elections.

At least seven of the nine opposition candidates are believed to be among those detained; several of them were also beaten.

The US and the EU have condemned the crackdown.

The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe says the vote, which saw the incumbent President Alexander Lukashenko re-elected, was flawed.

Speaking to BBC World Service, the wife of opposition candidate Vladimir Neklyaev, Olga, described the dramatic scene as her husband was snatched from his hospital bed.
