Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva meets supporters gathering outside his house to show him their support, in Sao Bernardo do Campo, near Sao Paulo, Brazil, on March 5, 2016. Brazil's ex-president Lula da Silva vowed to battle his opponents in the streets in a defiant speech late Friday, hours after being briefly detained as part of a probe into a massive corruption scheme. Prosecutors said Lula was targeted as part of the Operation Car Wash investigation into a sprawling embezzlement and bribery conspiracy centred on the state oil giant Petrobras. Lula was not arrested, but held for questioning over alleged "favors" received from corrupt construction companies implicated in a kickback scheme, prosecutors said.
