At least eight people have been killed in an explosion at a soccer stadium in the southern state of Minas Gerais, according to the state government.
The blast came hours after the country’s president announced the formation of a national security commission to oversee the countrys ongoing fight against drug trafficking.
Brazil’s president, Dilma Rousseff, said Sunday that the attack took place in the state of São Paulo and that two people were in custody.
Her statement came after an explosion rocked a concert hall in the city of Manaus, killing nine people, including the head of a soccer team.
Rousseff also announced that the country had launched an investigation into the attack.
The president has been accused of covering up the government’s response to the outbreak of the Zika virus in Brazil.
At least 10 people were killed in a bombing at a shopping mall in the northern city of Curitiba in March.
