About 3,000 people are estimated to have taken part in the protest.



This was reported by Reuters.

Former Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro spread a false claim that Brazil's electronic voting system was susceptible to fraud.

This sparked public outrage and sparked a violent movement of dissent against the election results. On Sunday, protesters stormed the country's Congress, the presidential palace and the Supreme Court.

People smashed windows, broke furniture and media estimated that about 3,000 people took part in the protest.

Police used tear gas against the people. Law enforcers began dispersing protesters and making arrests.
