Ukraine police investigating death of Belarus activist found hanged in Kyiv park

Vitaly Shishov, an exiled Belarusian activist who was found hanged in a park in Kyiv in what police say could be a murder, was an outspoken critic of the government in Belarus and staged rallies against it in Ukraine’s capital.
