Brasilia's anniversary marred by corruption scandal


Celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of Brazil's capital, Brasilia, have been marred by the scandal surrounding the city's governor.

Jose Roberto Arruda has been accused of trying to obstruct a corruption inquiry, following the broadcast of a secretly taped film allegedly showing him and other political figures accepting bribes - which he denies.

Gary Duffy reports from Brasilia.
