Two years in prison for letting teddy bears in

A border guard in Belarus was sentenced after a Swedish plane parachuted teddy bears into the country.  He was sentenced because he failed to report the border crossing of the plane that dropped the teddy bears containing pro-democracy messages.  Bolarus and Sweden expelled each other's diplomats over the incident and two civilians were arrested as well.  One was a journalism student who put a picture of the bears on his website and a landlord who offered an apartment to the two Swedish pilots.  All this over teddy bears?  attacking stuffed teddy bears
