Brazil Olympic chief urges protesters not to mar opening ceremony

Brazilian Olympic Committee President Carlos Arthur Nuzman holds the Olympic flame as he arrives in Brasilia from Geneva on May 3, 2016Brazil’s Olympics chief on Monday urged protesters angry over the impeachment of suspended president Dilma Rousseff not to mar the opening ceremony of the Rio Games in two months. The first Summer Olympics ever staged in South America open on August 5 in Rio’s Maracana Stadium. According to latest estimates, that could be just a few days after a vote in the Senate over whether to remove Rousseff from office — marking a showdown in a months-long political crisis that has divided the country and sparked accusations of a coup d’etat.
