Brazil’s president condemns ‘terrorist’ rioters who stormed Congress

Latin America Correspondent

In Brazil, President Lula has visited the damaged buildings stormed by rioters – and  condemned what he called the ‘terrorist acts’ carried out by supporters of his right-wing predecessor Jair Bolsonaro.

Mr Bolsonaro, who’s in the US, questioned the result of the election he had lost BUT has attempted to distance himself from the unrest.

Our Latin America Correspondent Guillermo Galdos is in Brasilia assessing the fallout.
