'Wall of shame' put up ahead of Brazil's impeachment vote

A fence called the 'wall of shame' has been put up ahead of a vote to decide whether to impeach Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff amid claims she manipulated government accounts to allegedly favour her re-election in 2014.

Located outside the Palace of Congress in Brasilia the fence is reportedly intended to separate rival supporters who are expected to gather outside as the lower house decide whether or not Ms Rousseff should be impeached.

If two-thirds of lower house members vote in favour of impeachment tonight, the case will be sent to the senate for trial.
