Brazil: Bolsonaro supporters call for military intervention

Thousands of Brazilians have taken to the streets after former president Lula da Silva secured a return to power on Sunday.

Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters are refusing to accept defeat and are calling on the military to annul the results.

Bolsonaro has still not conceded defeat to his rival Lula da Silva.

But has said he will respect the constitution – and called on protesters to go home.
