Clashes broke out in Rio de Janeiro’s busy downtown business district on Tuesday as police skirmished with striking schoolteachers. Teachers pressing for better pay had gathered in front of City Hall, where a vote on Mayor Eduardo Paes’ salary proposal was expected. The strikers oppose the proposal, which they say doesn’t go far enough to addressing their demands. Chaos broke out in late afternoon when police officers set off deafening percussion grenades and fired rubber bullets in this densely frequented commercial district. Negotiations between the city and the teachers’ unions have been acrimonious, and Tuesday was the strike’s 46th day.
