Bolsonaro tells students to read book by dictatorship-era torturer
Brazil's far-right president, Jair Bolsonaro, has been accused of "drinking from the sewer of history" after urging teenage students to read a book by a notorious dictatorship-era torturer accused of directing interrogation sessions where victims were were whipped, given electric shocks and pounded with vine wood canes.

Bolsonaro, an outspoken fan of the 1964-1985 military regime during which hundreds of political opponents were murdered and thousands more tortured, met with students at the gates of the presidential palace in the capital, Brasília, on Monday.

Trump's protege.
