Baltic states mark anniversary of human chain

Breaking News

Baltic states have marked the 20th anniversary of the day two million people joined hands against Soviet rule.

Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania held a 375-miles relay race to remember the Baltic Way human chain.

The Baltic human chain was organised on August 23, 1989 amid a drive to restore independence from Moscow.

It saw two million people from a total population of seven million in the three states hold hands in an act of solidarity and defiance.
