A court in Belarus fined a one-armed man for taking part in unsanctioned "clapping" protests in Minsk earlier in the week, Belarusian information website Khartiya-97 reported on Friday.

"The court ruled that the disabled man by the name of Konstantin will have to pay a fine of 1.05 million Belarusian rubles [some $200]," the website said.

The man was found guilty by the court of clapping in a public place. The fact that the man was clapping was proved by one of the witnesses during the trial.

No explanations were given on how the man was able to clap with only one hand.

A new wave of protests in Minsk and other cities on Sunday saw police use teargas to break up a protest in Minsk in which demonstrators clapped over an Independence Day speech by President Alexander Lukashenko, repeating recent midweek protests organized on social networking websites.

140 activists will face trial in Belarus after they were detained during an anti-government protest on Sunday. Witnesses say police used tear gas and beat activists as they tried to round up the latest silent demonstration marked only by clapping. The Independence Day celebrations come as the government struggles with a financial crisis, hoping to secure a multi-billion-dollar bailout from the IMF. The country's currency has been sharply devalued, while the budget deficit mounts. A younger wave of protesters has recently emerged, many of whom are organized online, outside the established opposition.

Their President an old fashioned dictator, blaming everyone but himself and his government.
