Baltic Way 20th anniversary marked

Two decades ago, 20 million Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians joined hands to form a nearly unbroken 650 kilometre long human chain. It was a symbolic event to protest at their occupation by Soviet Russia.

Celebrations have been going on in Vilnius, Tallin and Riga to mark the anniversary.
