Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday laid the first stone of what is set to become a Palestinian embassy in Brazil.

Abbas carried out the ceremony in Brasilia, placing the stone in ground donated by the Brazilian government in the same district as other diplomatic missions. Doves were released during the ceremony to represent peace, though one of the birds perched on Abbas’ head which provoked laughter among the crowds that gathered.
