Around 500 evicted families camped in front of the ruins of their homes, knocked down by authorities, because they had nowhere else to go, a homeless' rights group told AFP. They were forced out of their ramshackle homes by riot police who were enforcing an eviction order two days ago. The slum had existed for two years on illegally occupied property belonging to a bus company. AFP PHOTO/Mauricio LIMA (Photo credit should read MAURICIO LIMA/AFP/Getty Images)
