Relatives and friends of Douglas Rafael da Silva Pereira, a dancer friends and family say was the victim of police brutality, cry during his funeral at Botafogo cemetery in Rio de Janeiro, on April 24, 2014Brazilian police fired tear gas to disperse dozens of angry mourners who attended the Rio funeral of a dancer friends and family say was the victim of police brutality. Violence flared on Tuesday in the city's tourist Copacabana Beach area following the man's death, heightening fears about security in a city that will host seven World Cup games including the July 13 final. Large crowds had earlier marched ahead of the open coffin of Douglas Rafael da Silva Pereira as his body inched its way towards the Sao Joao Batista cemetery where 400 people were gathered shouting "Justice! Justice! Police murderers!" Local media says the 25-year-old died after he was mistaken for a drug trafficker by police, sparking unrest in a favela, or slum, just a stone's throw from Copacabana Beach and close to another well-heeled tourist area, Ipanema.

In the statement, issued shortly before U.S. President Barack Obama left Japan after a state visit, the two nations said they shared strong concern over China's air defense zone in the East China Sea but reaffirmed interest in building productive ties with Beijing. ...
