Olympics: Brazil interim president opens Rio Games

RIO DE JANEIRO, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 6th Augst,2016) - Loud jeers erupted around the Maracana stadium as Brazil's interim president Michel Temer officially opened the Rio Olympics on Friday. Boos and jeers rang out in the packed stadium as Temer, who took over when impeachment proceedings started against President Dilma Rousseff, started speaking.

As soon as he finished, a loud round of fireworks was set off to drown out the cat calls. Brazil is in political crisis with several leaders facing corruption cases.

Rousseff supporters accuse Temer of being part of a plot against the suspended president.
