KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Belarusian authorities have  blocked access to another news site, the latest in a series of steps restricting independent media in the country after it was shaken by a wave of mass anti-government protests. The Belarusian Ministry of Information blocked access to the Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus website, the Belarusian subsidiary of a popular Russian newspaper of the same name. The ministry didn’t provide any reasons for the decision. The access was restricted several hours after it ran a story about an alleged shootout in a Minsk apartment that left two people dead — an opposition supporter and a KGB officer. The news outlet published a comment from the opposition supporter’s friend, who described him a positive light.
