Supporters of former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro stormed the Congress building in Brasília, the capital of Brazil, and clashed with police, who used tear gas to disperse them. The incident occurred a week after the inauguration of left-wing politician Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who defeated Bolsonaro in the October election. The protesters, who had been camping near the Congress building and smashed windows, are refusing to accept Bolsonaro's defeat. In his inauguration speech, Lula vowed to rebuild the country and criticized the policies of his predecessor, who did not attend the handover ceremony.
