A Brazilian TV presenter and politician accused of organising killings to feature on his crime show has spoken out to deny the allegations against him.

Police believe Wallace Souza staged crime scenes to eliminate rivals and boost ratings of "Canal Livre", aired in Amazonas state.

Mr Souza says it was his television crew's vigilance that landed them scoops on crimes - not his involvement.

Gary Duffy reports from Sao Paulo.
