Journalist Who Died in Ukraine Car Bombing Buried in Belarus

MINSK, Belarus (AP) — Prominent journalist Pavel Sheremet, who died when his car was bombed in Ukraine, has been buried in his hometown of Minsk, Belarus.

Sheremet, who once was imprisoned in Belarus, where independent media are under consistent pressure from the authoritarian government, had moved to Ukraine two years ago after several years in Russia, seeing Ukraine as having a more free media environment.

He worked for the news website Ukrainska Pravda, which is noted for investigative work, and remained editor of a news website in Belarus.

A car he was driving was blown up Wednesday in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. No arrests have been made.

Hundreds of mourners attended his Saturday funeral at a Minsk church, a day after hundreds of others honored him in Kiev, including Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
