Brazilian police have removed a group of indigenous people who had returned to an abandoned museum in Rio de Janeiro which is set to be demolished ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
The museum is next to the Maracana Stadium, the venue for the World Cup final, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics.
Indigenous people from around 10 ethnic groups had been squatting in homes they built on the site of the museum for years, but they were evicted on March 22.
