Elections in Brazil: The rise of the far-right's Jair Bolsonaro

Brazil's far-right presidential candidate has vowed to put the country first. This as Jair Bolsonaro prepares to go head-to-head with the left's Fernando Haddad in the run-off on October 28. Bolsonaro's policies have been controversial, but he insists he won't be changing his tone just to win more votes.


Meanwhile, Venezuela faces international calls for a "transparent investigation" into the death of Fernando Alban. The 52-year-old lawmaker died while in pre-trial detention. Caracas insists he threw himself from the 10th floor of state intelligence headquarters, a claim the opposition denies.

Finally, residents on an island in Louisiana are set to become the United States' first climate refugees. Due to rising sea levels, the Isle de Jean Charles is rapidly vanishing. The population will be rehoused at a town nearby over the next four years.
