Brazilian rescue agents have retrieved six more bodies of people who lost their lives during last week's severe rainstorms in the northeastern state of Pernambuco, thus rising to death toll to 106, Agencia Brasil reported Tuesday. Ten others remain listed as “missing.”
Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro Sunday announced he would be traveling first thing Monday to Recife to see for himself the devastation caused by yet another rainstorm in the country's northeast, which has left at least 84 dead, and over 50 missing as figures are updated constantly.
Eduardo Campos, one of Brazil's most popular state governors, came one step closer to a presidential bid this week when his party withdrew from President Dilma Rousseff's seventeen parties’ coalition government. The Brazilian Socialist Party decided to pull its two ministers from Rousseff's cabinet to give Campos freedom to run in elections in October 2014.
