Brazil: clashes in Belo Horizonte as protests continue

Tens of thousands took part in a demonstration in the south-eastern city, with smaller demonstrations also taking place across Brazil, a day after President Dilma Rousseff promised to respond to concerns about corruption and poor public services.
