Arrest of Belarus opposition journalist shows 'erosion of international norms'

IN THE PRESS – Monday, May 24, 2021: "Aleksander Lukashenko has incurred the wrath of Europe" writes Russian paper Kommersant, after a plane carrying Belarusian opposition journalist Roman Protasevich was forced to land in Minsk. For Washington Post columnist Max Boot, this arrest is the latest "erosion of international norms" meant to test the West. Papers in France judge Emmanuel Macron for his appearance on a popular YouTube channel. Plus, there's anger after a US high school photoshopped yearbook pictures of female students, while a new tanning trend is deemed both "ridiculous and dangerous".
