Thu Sep 1, 2016 11:55:55

Hundreds of protesters, unhappy with Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment as Brazilian president, smashed the windows of downtown business offices, some bank branches, and a police SUV in Sao Paulo on Wednesday night.

The protest began peacefully in the afternoon but turned violent after the new president Michel Temer addressed the nation in a televised message.

Anti-riot police tried to quell the demonstration that began in one of the city’s main avenues with stun grenades and tear gas.

It’s not clear whether anyone was injured in the clashes.

At one point, a group of masked demonstrators threw rocks at a police SUV, shattering its windows before attempting to roll it over.
