    Sept 20 (Reuters) - Belarus police detained more than ten protesters in Minsk on Sunday, Russia's TASS news agency reported, citing Belarus police.

    People were gathering for a rally in Minsk and other cities, calling for veteran leader Alexander Lukashenko to step down.

    Mass street protests have rocked Belarus since presidential elections in August, at which Lukashenko claimed a landslide victory in a vote his opponents say was rigged. (Reporting by Andrey Ostroukh Editing by David Goodman )
