KGB raids human rights activist Alena Tankachova's apartment

Belarus' state security service (KGB) on Wednesday searched the apartment of human rights activist Alena Tankachova in Minsk.

The search was justified by a warrant issued with regard to the investigation of a criminal case over mass riots on December 19 in Minsk, Tankachova told Belapan news agency.

KGB agents took away the documents associated with her human rights activities and a German-number SIM-card for a mobile phone, she said.

The agents interrogated Tankachova, but she could not reveal the details of interrogation since she signed a non-disclosure statement.
