Brazil: Clashes after teachers protests, 4 policemen injured

Protesters in Brazil's largest cities, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, clashed with the police after marching in support of striking teachers. Four policemen were injured and dozens of protesters were arrested.


According to BBC, soon after a peaceful march by more than 5,000 people ended in Rio, a much smaller masked group attacked shops, set fire to a police car and threw petrol bombs. There were also clashes in Sao Paulo, where shops were ransacked. Seven banks were vandalized during the unrest in Sao Paulo. (Ynet)
