EVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, The Journal brings you the five biggest stories of the day.

1. #BELARUS: Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said the Belarusian government’s defence of forcing a passenger plane to divert to Minsk so authorities could arrest a journalist is “nonsense”.

2. #JOURNALIST ARRESTED: Roman Protasevich was hauled off a Ryanair flight which was diverted to Minsk yesterday. Here’s a profile of the blogger and activist.

3. #GUILTY: Four men plead guilty in connection with shooting of gangland criminal Wayne Whelan in Dublin.

4. #LIVING CONDITIONS: Traveller rights groups welcomed a new long-term report which has recommended improvements to living conditions at a Cork halting site which activists say has the potential to change conditions at sites across the country.

5. #HACKING: The HSE said it is working closely with social media companies as part of efforts to prevent private medical data from Irish patients being shared online.
