    In Brazil, the shortage of affordable housing has forced many residents to set up temporary tents outside the country's largest city, Sao Paulo.

    Up to 8,000 families now live in a camp set up four months ago, to pressure the government to build more subsidised homes.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Sao Paulo.
