Police in Belarus on Wednesday arrested dozens of anti-government protesters during a banned rally in the capital and other parts of the country calling for the ouster of President Alexander Lukashenko, the AP reports from Minsk.

It was the sixth rally in a series called "Revolution by Social Networks," a grass-roots movement that claims thousands of supporters nationwide.

Hundreds of demonstrators set the alarms on their cell phones to go off at 8 p.m. in a gesture calling for fellow Belarusians to wake up and resist the government.
