Brazil president booed at Rio Paralympics opening ceremony

Brazilians jeered their new President Michel Temer on Wednesday as he attended an Independence Day rally in Brasilia and the opening ceremony of the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The events were the first official gatherings that Temer had attended since becoming the country’s president on August 31 after Dilma Rousseff was impeached and removed from office amid a declining economy and a bribery scandal. Temer will now serve the remaining two years and four months of her term.
