Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has aroused outrage by sharing a video on Twitter that shows one man urinating on the head of another man. Bolsonaro made the post criticising Carnival. Many conservatives detest Brazil’s Carnival celebrations, seeing them as heathen. Bolsonaro wrote, “I feel uncomfortable showing it, but we have to expose the truth for the population to know and always make its priorities.” The tweet quickly garnered thousands of comments, many sharply critical of the post. 

TSA agents find a grenade launcher in luggage

A Florida man’s plans to bring a military rocket-propelled grenade launcher back home were shot down after security screeners at a Pennsylvania airport spotted the nonfunctioning weapon in his checked bag. The TSA says the unassembled parts of the launcher and a replica grenade were found when an alarm went off as the bag passed through security equipment at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Allentown, about 96km north of Philadelphia. The man, from St Augustine, was stopped by police and told officials he thought he could bring the non-functioning launcher onboard in a checked bag.
