Bush greeted by clashes in Brazil

Clashes broke out in Brazil's largest city as US President Bush arrived at the start of a six-day regional tour.

At least 20 people were injured in clashes with riot police in Sao Paulo after thousands turned out to protest against George W Bush's visit.

The US leader is due to meet Brazil's Luis Inacio Lula da Silva to sign an ethanol energy alliance.

He will also go to Uruguay, Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico on a tour aimed at strengthening regional ties.

In Sao Paulo, about 10,000 people spilled out along one of the city's broadest avenues, in the heart of the financial district, banging drums, waving red flags and carrying banners reading "Bush Go Home".
