- Police fire tear gas at President Dilma Rousseff’s supporters
- Rousseff supporters protest against impeachment in Rio
- Senate to deliver ruling on her impeachment on Wednesday
Police in Sao Paulo, Brazil have used tear gas to disperse a crowd of supporters of suspended Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff as she defended herself against impeachment before the Senate.
Thousands of Rousseff’s supporters have taken to the streets across all major Brazilian cities, ahead of an impending Senate vote on permanently removing the country’s first female leader from office.
The body temporarily suspended President Rousseff’s powers for up to six months in May on allegations of hurting the economy with alleged budget manipulations.
