VIDEO : See: Chaos in Brazil, scandalous memoirs of Prince Harry and scandal over coal in Germany

Euronews recalls some of the highlights of this week.

Brasilia Riots

Hundreds of supporters of Brazil’s far-right ex-president Jair Bolsonaro broke through police barricades and stormed the Congress, the presidential palace and the Supreme Court on Sunday, in what President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva condemned as a fascist attack.

Lula, who was in the southeastern city of Araraquara visiting a region hit by severe flooding, signed a federal intervention order in Brasilia, giving his government special powers to restore law and order in the capital.

Prince Harry book

Prince Harry’s controversial memoir Spare went on sale and quickly became a bestseller.

Commentators said the book damaged relations between Harry and the British royal family.

Shattering the royal motto “never complain and never explain”, the book explores the Duke of Sussex’s grief over his mother’s death and his resentment at being second only to his brother, Prince William, heir to the British throne.

It also reveals descriptions of fights and a physical fight with William, revelations about how he lost his virginity, and his cocaine and marijuana use, to name but a few.

Protest against a coal mine in Germany

The fate of the tiny village has sparked a heated debate in Germany about the country’s continued use of coal and whether fighting climate change justifies breaking the law.

Environmental activists clashed with police who on Wednesday launched an eviction operation in the village of L├╝tzerath, west of Cologne, to be bulldozed to expand a nearby lignite mine.
