A Brazilian politician claims protesters pelted her with eggs on on her wedding day, over her family’s support for the country’s controversial president.

Maria Victoria Barros, 25, a daughter of President Michel Temer’s health minister, had to leave the church in an armoured vehicle after hundreds of protests gathered outside it on Friday, according to the BBC.

The wedding of Ms Barros, a member of the state assembly in Parana, was attended by Brazil’s political elite, including her father, Ricardo Barros, and her mother, Cida Borghetti, Parana’s deputy governor.

But demonstrators flocked the church in Curitiba, the Parana state capital, carrying signs with anti-government slogans.

Security guards were seen protecting the bride and groom with umbrellas, as protesters accusing Ms Barros of being a ‘coup plotter’.

Eventually, riot police were called to the Church of the Rosary, in order to protect the wedding party and guests.

Ms Barros said the protest was linked to her mother’s recent decision to run for state governor and claimed they had been ‘financed by left-wing parties and unions’.
