Journalist In Belarus Says He's Being Pressured

A correspondent for the Polish daily newspaper "Gazeta Wyborcza" in Belarus says his family is being put under pressure.

Andrei Paczobut told RFE/RL's Belarus Service that someone seriously damaged the door of his apartment in the Belarusian city of Hrodna today.

He added that an unknown man kept calling his 8-year-old daughter's mobile phone last week.

Paczobut thinks that the pressure on his family is connected to his association with the Union of Poles in Belarus, an NGO that is not recognized by the Belarusian government.
