Export bans hit Brazil amid tainted meat scandal

After the discovery by Brazilian police of a corruption network in which some meatpackers paid crooked inspectors to pass off rotten and adulterated meat as safe, worldwide markets have been partially or totally closing their doors to Brazilian meat. It’s a difficult situation for Brazil, which sells $15 billion worth of meat abroad, its biggest export.

But first, devastating floods in Peru wreak havoc in the country, leaving close to 80 dead and some 650,000 affected.

And to mark this week's International French Language Day, we visit a French high school in Colombia.
