Thousand had gathered to greet Brazil's leftist icon Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva as he walked free from jail on Friday after a year-and-a-half behind bars for corruption following a court ruling that could release thousands of convicts. The former president pumped his fist in the air as he exited the federal police headquarters in the southern city of Curitiba and was mobbed by hundreds of supporters and journalists. In an impassioned address, Lula vowed to "continue fighting" for ordinary Brazilians and expose the "lying side of the federal police". His croaky voice was at times drowned out by the cheers of the crowd and by fireworks.
