Brazilian protesters clash with police

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Brazilians angry over the cost of hosting a string of international sporting events continue to create havoc on the streets of Belo Horizonte. Vandals and looters kicked down the doors to at least one shop stealing merchandise inside. Others were seen stealing motorcycles and setting them alight on the street. In Brasilia, police fired tear gas to disperse the rowdy crowd in front of the National Congress building. Some arrests were made. This is the latest incident to mar FIFA's Confederation Cup tournament after a large protest movement swept the country this month. Many demonstrators have expressed anger over the amount spent on stadiums ahead of the World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. More protests are planned for the rest of the week.
