Oh that kind of “bomb scare”

Looks like piracy.

A Belarusian journalist and opposition activist is being held at an airport in Minsk after his Lithuania-bound flight was forced to land, opposition politicians and outlets said on Sunday.

Opposition figures swiftly criticized the move, which they said was a bid by the government of longtime leader Alexander Lukashenko to clamp down on critical voices.

The regime says it was a bomb scare, but one suspects it was a bomb scare in the sense that the regime yelled “bomb scare!!!” as it forced the plane to divert.
