    Tensions are high in Brazil ahead of the auction of exploration rights of offshore oil near Rio de Janeiro.

    More than 1,000 troops will stand guard outside the hotel where the sell-off will take place.

    Workers at the state run oil company have been on strike since Thursday to protest the sale and criticise its heavy-handed approach.
