Brazil President Dilma Rousseff on Thursday canceled a trip to Japan planned for later this month as her government grapples with a mass protest movement, her office said.

"She has ultimately decided to postpone this trip, which would have involved several days of travel. She has decided to stay in Brazil due to current events," a source in her office told AFP.
