1. Bolsonaro supporters seize government buildings

Hundreds of supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro stormed the Congress building, the presidential palace and the Brazilian Supreme Court on Sunday.

President Lula da Silva was not present at the facilities (he was in Sao Paulo at the time of the attack) and neither of the two houses of Congress were in session.

Authorities brought the situation under control several hours later and reported at least 400 people arrested on Sunday.

The takeover of public buildings occurs about a week after Lula took office as president.

Several world leaders condemned the attack and expressed their support for Brazil's democracy.
