Dictator and thug leader of ex Soviet Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko has arrested tens of thousands of his own citizens protesting the results of last years Presidential election, which by all accounts he lost.
Now he has highjacked a plane, to arrest a journalist who helped organize protests against him.
Europe is outraged and has banned flights over Belarus and threatened to tighten sanctions.
On this Back Story Dana Lewis talks to Andrei Sannikov, who fled Belarus after he was jailed and tortured for opposing Lukashenko, and he thinks the brutal dictator will have to step down.
And journalist and author Luke Harding who says it's hard to predict, but he too won't rule out an implosion in Belarus and removal of Lukashenko.
