Diverted flight passengers saw Belarus activist 'panicking'

Passengers on Ryanair flight FR4978 described the anxious minutes for opposition blogger Roman Protasevich after he realised that the plane was being diverted to Minsk, where he was later detained. Some were draped in the flags used by the opposition, while others held up signs supporting him, including one that read "Ryanair, Where is Roman?!".
