A heavy police presence has been in force for the latest protests in Rio de Janiero.

Violent protests have erupted in Brazil over a proposed 9% increase in public transport fares.

On Monday, Brazilian cameraman Santiago Andrade was declared brain dead after sustaining an injury while filming the protests.

The BBC's Julia Carneiro said protesters on Monday's march were "almost outnumbered by police".
