The European Union is preparing sanctions against officials in Belarus who are responsible for a deadly post-election crackdown on protesters, the EU foreign affairs chief, Josep Borrell, has said.
The green light was given by the 27 EU foreign ministers during a video conference in Brussels on Friday, while protests across Belarus over the controversial August 9 election continued for a sixth day.
