Belarus demands justice after claims a diplomat was attacked at London embassy

The government of Belarus has registered its concern with the UK after an attack took place outside its embassy in London on Sunday.

The Belarus Foreign Ministry said in a statement that a group of people smeared the facade of the embassy building and then physically assaulted Belarusian diplomats who arrived at the scene. 

It added that one of the diplomats "sustained serious injuries requiring urgent medical assistance" and was diagnosed with a broken nose, a concussion and a broken tooth.
