CURITIBA, Brazil (AP) — Former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's release from jail has fired up the weakened leftist opposition, though it's likely to anger conservatives who considered his incarceration proof the country was finally serious about ending corruption.

Hundreds of red-shirted Brazilians applauded the 74-year-old politician Friday as he walked out of a federal police building. His release came less than a day after the Supreme Court ruled a person can be imprisoned only after all appeals have been exhausted.
