Brazil's Independence Day celebrations have been marred as anger at the authorities again spilled over into outbreaks of violence.
In Rio de Janeiro families rushed for safety as hundreds of protesters invaded stands in the area where parades were due to take place.
Despite the trouble, elsewhere the protests were mostly peaceful - although they were much smaller than in June when massive crowds vented their anger at corruption and mismanagement.
