Brazilian police have fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse some protesters in the city of Fortaleza, as unrest continues across the country.

At least 30,000 people rallied in the north-eastern city ahead of the Confederations Cup game with Mexico.

The government warned earlier it would deploy forces to five cities.

The unrest was sparked by transport price hikes in Sao Paulo but it has now grown into broader discontent over poor public services and corruption.
