 A group of about 60 anti-government protesters took over the chamber of Brazil's lower house of Congress on Wednesday, sparking chaos as guards tried to drag them off the main stage where the speaker and other leaders normally sit.

It was not immediately clear what the exact demands of the protesters were, though some were shouting slogans against privatizations planned by President Michel Temer's center-right government.
