Crowds in Sao Paulo, the country’s largest city, chanted that Bolsonaro should be imprisoned

Tens of thousands of people held pro-democracy rallies in Brazil, in angry reaction to the storming of parliament by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro.

The demonstrators called for the perpetrators to be punished and for Bolsonaro to be imprisoned.

The new president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, vowed to eliminate any attempt to overthrow his government.

These statements came after a meeting with officials at the presidential palace, a day after government headquarters were stormed in the capital, Brasilia.
