Al-Jazeera Video: Brazilian satirical cartoonist faces death threats
"A Brazilian satirical cartoonist says he fears he may be assassinated or disappeared after two pro-police Facebook pages encourage members to harass and kill him. This comes after the cartoonist Carlos Latuff made provocative statements on his own Facebook page praising a Brazilian boy for killing his parents, both of whom were police officers. Latuff, who is of Lebanese descent, is no stranger to controversy and his work has dealt with Israel, Palestine, and Egypt, as well as with police brutality in Brazil. Al Jazeera spoke to Latuff."
