Brazil: Teachers' protest in Brazil turns violent

Tens of thousands of people have been demonstrating in the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to support striking teachers. The protestors are calling for better pay and reform of the education sector. The marches turned violent after masked men set cars on fire and vandalised government buildings.
