Text size Aa Aa

Hundreds of people have demonstrated outside government buildings In Rio de Janeiro, calling for state governor, Sergio Cabral, to be impeached for corruption.

He is accused of using a state-owned helicopter to fly his children and nannies and to his weekend mansion.

Demonstrators managed to break into the Legislative Assembly building, but were forced out by police with pepper spray.

The protest was organised by the anarchy group ‘Black Bloc.’

The protest follows a wave of anti-government demonstrations across Brazil earlier this summer.
