STORYLINE:

Hundreds of anti-World Cup protesters in Belo Horizonte were surrounded by riot police on Tuesday, as they danced and sang to show their opposition to the tournament.

Some of the protesters had written anti-military police slogans across their bodies and statements proclaiming their right to protest.

The heavy security presence and bag searches didn't appear to bother protesters, one woman even took the opportunity to snap a 'selfie' in front of the police line.
