    EU threatens sanctions as observers say Belarus elections not fair

    According to this article, from the Guardian today, the EU is considering sanctions, following election observers saying that the Belarus poll did not meet international standards:

    The US supported the call for new elections and the EU said it was considering "targeted sanctions", such as denying Belarusian officials visas - senior politicians are already barred - and targeting bank accounts. Ursula Plassnik, foreign minister for Austria, which holds the EU's rotating presidency, said the opposition had been "systematically intimidated".
