300 families evicted from Sao Paulo shanty town

In Brazil, nearly 300 families were evicted on Thursday from the land they had occupied in the city of Sao Paulo.

Some of the squatters resisted and riot police used tear gas to disperse the families.

They had settled there last April and already a small shanty town had started to be formed.
