From Mosnews.com:

Belarusian opposition activist Andrey Klimov, who is going to run for president in 2006, was detained in Minsk on Friday for holding a mass protest rally in the country’s capital on March 25, RIA Novosti reports.

The rally of several thousand protestors was called a rehearsal for a “velvet revolution” by those who held it.
