BRASIL: Rio Police Back Down On Maracana Stadium Indigena Eviction...For Now.


     Rio riot police suddenly withdrew from their effort to evict members of an indigena tribe...occupying an area next to the famed Maracana football stadium.
     They were said to be waiting for a court order...that apparently never arrived.
     An aged and decrepit building housing an indigena museum is scheduled to be demolished for the World Cup...for a stadium car park.
     Tribe members of the Aldeia Maracana say they are ready to defend the museum...with bows and arrows.
