The incidents, reminiscent of the January 6 storming of the US Capitol, came just a week after leftist President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was sworn in January 1.

Bolsonaro’s supporters have been protesting Lula’s election victory since October 30, blocking roads, burning cars and gathering outside military buildings, asking the armed forces to intervene.
