Protests break out in Brazil

Tens of thousands of Brazilians are crying foul after bus fares increased by just 9 cents. Protests broke out in Sao Paolo and elsewhere this week.

 

Protesters say the hike is just one more example of how government nickel-and-dimes the poorest out of their money. The country is building stadiums and revamping infrastructure in preparation for the World up next year, and the 2016 Olympic Games.

 

What's really behind the Brazilian riots?
