Belarus--Religious liberty restricted. (News in Brief: Russia).
The new law places strict controls on religious activities, especially those involving foreign-born workers. It will affect minority religious groups more than Catholics.

Aid to the Church in Need reports that he foresees that life will not get any better for the Church in the immediate future.
