Police arrested at least 400 Bolsonaro supporters – according to international media – who were taken to jail in handcuffs
A massive arrest operation followed riots and scenes of chaos in Brazil after thousands of supporters of former president Jair Bolsonaro stormed the country’s Congress, the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court in the capital, Brasilia.
Carrying Brazilian flags and wearing clothes in the colors of the Brazilian flag, more than 3,000 Bolsonaro supporters stormed government buildings, causing extensive damage.
