Brazilian authorities said that Police presence to be more than doubled in Brasilia after storming of public buildings by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro

Iran PressAmerica: Authorities in Brazil’s capital have moved to increase security at government buildings that were ransacked by thousands of former President Jair Bolsonaro’s supporters in what the government denounced as an “anti-democratic” attack.

Brasilia district authorities said on Monday that they would more than double the security deployment at the Esplanade of Ministries and Three Powers Square, areas where the government’s presence is concentrated.

Celina Leao, the acting governor of Brazil's Federal District, announced at a press conference that the presence of military police will increase "immediately," according to news outlet Poder360.

The changes come just over a week after Bolsonaro supporters stormed Brazil’s Congress, Supreme Court and presidential palace on January 8 in an effort to contest the new administration of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. 219
