Hundreds of thousands march in Brazil

EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL Thousands of demonstrators gathered in cities across Brazil to rally against what they see as poor public services, police violence and government corruption. The marches began earlier this month over an increase in bus and subway fares but quickly gained support as police used heavy-handed tactics to quell the demonstrations. Last week police fired rubber bullets and tear gas in clashes that injured more than 100 people, including 15 journalists. The protests have gathered steam as Brazil is hosting the soccer Confederation's Cup, a dry run for next year's World Cup - which many see as a drain on public resources which would be better spent elsewhere.
