Dilma Rousseff has moved out of Brazil's presidential palace, six days after senators voted to impeach and remove her from office.

News portal G1 showed images Brazil's first female president leaving the Alvorada Palace in the capital of Brasilia on Tuesday. The station later showed her being greeted by supporters at the airport and boarding a plane.

Rousseff has said she planned to return to her hometown of Porto Alegre in southern Brazil.

Rousseff was removed from office Wednesday for breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the federal budget.

She denies the accusations. She says her removal was a modern-day coup d'état by political enemies who wanted her out office.

Former Vice President Michel Temer is now president and will serve out Rousseff's term, which runs through 2018.
