Brazil: Anti-corruption protesters demand President Rousseff's ouster

  • There have been huge protests in Brazil against state corruption, with many demonstrators calling for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff.

    The ruling Worker's Party has been accused of bribery at the scandal-hit state oil giant Petrobas. Rousseff herself has been given a clean chit in a probe by the attorney general.

    But the opposition and many protesters say that the president can’t wash her hands off the multi-billion dollar corruption scandal in which many senior politicians are facing an investigation.
