Protesters and Police Clash Over Brazilian Oil Auction

Brazilian security forces released tear gas on more than 300 protesters in Barra de Tijuca on Monday. Protesters and the government are clashing over the controversial Libra oil field, in which the government is auctioning off exploration rights. The scene is chaotic as demonstrators say the government should remain in control of oil rights.
