|Brazil: police and residents clash after funeral of dancer in Rio |
Police and residents of a shantytown in Rio de Janeiro have again clashed over the death of a dancer, raising fresh fears over security as Brazil prepares to host the football World Cup.
Trouble flared as protesters marched back from the funeral of Douglas Pereira, allegedly killed by police after being mistaken for a drug dealer.
His shooting on Tuesday had already sparked clashes then.
The 25-year-old's mother, Maria de Fatima da Silva, claims he was tortured to death.
