RIO DE JANEIRO, – Brazilian riot police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse a small protest near the Maracana stadium that will host Friday’s opening ceremony for the Olympic Games, television images showed.

The protest, which grouped a few hundred people according to a witness, was against corruption and overspending on the Olympic Games, which are taking place during Brazil’s worst economic downturn in decades.
