Apparent links between Brazilian leader Jair Bolsonaro and two suspects arrested over the murder of rights activist Marielle Franco are believed to be a coincidence, police said Tuesday, as the president faced scrutiny over the connections. One of the two suspects apparently published a photograph of himself alongside Bolsonaro on his Facebook account — since deleted — while the other lived in the same Rio de Janeiro residential complex as the president. Bolsonaro dismissed the photo with suspect Elcio Vieira de Queiroz, which went viral on social media, as one of thousands he’s posed for with members of the armed forces.
