    Background: SAO PAULO, BRAZIL

    In Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, police used tear-gas on April 5 as looters -- mainly small boys -- smashed shop windows and helped themselves to goods. Trouble had begun some hours before in the suburb of Santa Amrao when several hundred people began protesting against local unemployment. Reports said tow thousand demonstrators, many hurling stones, ripped out iron railings and stormed the grounds of the state governor's palace. Riot police dispersed the crowd with baton charges and firing warning shots into the air. Violence spread, although Governor Franco Montoro appealed for calm, and promised to create more jobs. Police said more than three hundred people were arrested as unrest spread through the city's central and southern district.
