Belarus TV shows arrest of 'Russian mercenaries'

Belarus police arrested 32 Russians at a sanatorium, alleged to be members of the Wagner mercenary group.

State channel Belaruskaja Tele-Radio showed the arrests, near the capital Minsk, on 29 July.

Russia denies any links to the group - but wants Belarus to explain its actions.

Tensions are high as Belarus heads for a presidential election on 9 August.
