Crackdown on Pillow Fighting in Belarus

BelarusPillowFight072010.jpgI’m coming to this story a bit late but can’t resist posting it here. Last week police in Minsk arrested 50 people for taking part in a public pillow fight, according to this AP report (sadly, this is not a joke):

On Thursday, club-wielding police dispersed about 400 pillow-wielding youths who gathered in Minsk, the capital, to humorously commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald.
