Jair Bolsonaro supporters call on military for help after election defeat

Brazil police have clashed with protestors blocking roads across the country in support of the defeated President Jair Bolsonaro.

Nearly 48 hours since leftist leader Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva won the election, Bolsonaro is yet to accept defeat.

The protestors are making unfounded allegations that the result is fraudulent – mirroring claims made by Donald Trump supporters following the 2020 US election.
