Protesters set two buses on fire in Southern Brazil

IN Porto Alegre, Brazil, two buses were set ablaze on Sunday night, sparking a swift response from firefighters.

Fortunately, there were no passengers on board at the time.

Eyewitnesses reported that cars attempting to approach the burning buses were attacked with rocks, adding to the chaos of the situation.

The unrest is believed to have stemmed from a protest that escalated into violence upon the arrival of the military brigade. Protesters allegedly began hurling rocks at the authorities, leading to a tense standoff.

The disturbance reportedly originated from residents of the Princesa Isabel Housing Complex, known as “Carandiru,” though the exact motive behind the protest remains unclear.

This incident comes at a challenging time for southern Brazil, which has recently been grappling with severe flooding and tragic deaths.

As of the latest update, no arrests have been made, and local police are actively investigating the incident to identify and apprehend those responsible.
