The Border Guard Committee of Belarus says it has detained a Turkmenistan-born Swedish man and is preparing to extradite the former journalist to Turkmenistan which he fled more than a decade ago.
The committee's Alexander Tishchenko said on Friday that Chary Annamuradov was detained last month as he flew into Belarus since his name was on a wanted-list shared by several former Soviet republics.
