Deaths from Brazil resort mudslide reach 26


The number of people killed in a landslide that hit a Brazilian island resort on New Year's Day has risen to at least 26.

Heavy rain triggered mudslides elsewhere in the Rio region, destroying homes in hillside slums.

More than 60 people are reported to have died across south-eastern Brazil.

Stuart Tinworth reports.
