Extra, July 5th
The Tuesday edition of Brazilian newspaper Extrafeatures a picture of policemen, occupying a portion Rio de Janeiro's international airport Tom Jobim to protest unpaid salaries as security fears rise a month before the Summer Olympics are set to open.
"It is horrible," reads the front-page headline, a quote from Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes about the safety situation of the city for the Olympic Games, which will take place between August 5 and 21.
Rio security forces are suffering from the effects of the country's worst recession in decades, to the point where they sometimes have to ask for donations of pens, cleaning supplies and even toilet paper. Rio state's governor, Francisco Dornelles, declared a state of financial emergency last month.
