A soldier takes position in front of Hotel Windsor, in which the auction for Libra offshore oilfield will take place, in Rio de Janeiro October 20, 2013. Brazil's government sees the planned Monday sale of Libra, an oil discovery billed as the biggest offshore oilfield ever sold, as a crowning achievement of an energy plan designed to end poverty and help the country join the developed world. More than 1,100 men, including police officers, firemen and army staff, are cordoning off the venue of the auction, which has lured strong opposition from oil workers and other groups that are against the sale of exploration rights to foreign companies.
