The brawl on Ipanema

Fun in the sun on Rio's most famous beach:

Police arrested three men on Monday following a massive brawl that terrified beachgoers on Rio's famous Ipanema beach.

The brawl, involving some 50 people armed with sticks or swinging tables and chairs, lasted about 15 minutes and caused panic among sunbathers on the crowded beach late Sunday afternoon, police said.

Police said the fighting apparently broke out between rival groups from two different shantytowns.
