World leaders condemn Brazil violence as US lawmakers call for Bolsonaro extradition

No Comments

Joe Biden said the situation in Brazil was “outrageous” after supporters of former president Jair Bolsonaro invaded the country’s congress, presidential palace and supreme court on Sunday, with some senior US lawmakers calling for the far-right figure to be extradited from the US.

Biden’s words of condemnation were echoed by world leaders across the globe, and by some of Brazil’s closest neighbours.

President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who defeated Bolsonaro in a closely fought election last year, announced a federal security intervention in Brasília lasting until 31 January after capital security forces initially were overwhelmed by the invaders.
