Facebook has said news articles will start to re-appear in Australian users' feeds in the coming days, after it reached a deal with the government on plans to make tech giants pay for journalism. The agreement sees four changes made to the proposed media code, including adding a period of mediation before a government arbitrator intervenes in a dispute between tech companies and publishers. Also in this edition, shares in the Brazilian oil giant Petrobras have slumped after President Jair Bolsonaro moved to replace its CEO.
