Aerial video shows Bolsonaro supporters running riot

STORY: Footage from local channel TV Globo showed thousands of people storming into the Brazilian Congress, presidential palace, and Supreme Court.

The sight of thousands of yellow-and-green clad protesters running riot in the capital capped months of tension following the Oct. 30 vote.

Around 6.30 p.m. local time, some three hours after the initial reports of the invasion, security forces managed to retake the three buildings, GloboNews reported. TV images showed dozens of rioters being led away in handcuffs.
