Rio water protest: Flotilla occupies Guanabara Bay

A flotilla of boats has sailed across Rio de Janeiro's Guanabara Bay to protest against water pollution ahead of the 2016 Olympics.

Authorities in Rio have admitted they will not meet the goal set to reduce the amount of raw sewage spilled into the bay ahead of the Games.

The BBC's Julia Carneiro was on board one of the protesters' boats.
