Protesters call for impeachment of corrupt leader

Tens of thousands of Brazilians protested corruption and called for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff in demonstrations across the country Sunday. …Brazil’s embattled president as she struggles with a 10 percent approval rating, an economy expected to contract 4 percent this year and a corruption scandal in which billions of dollars were paid in bribes on contracts with Petrobras, the state-run oil company.

Rousseff’s former party treasurer and her government’s leader in Brazil’s senate have been jailed in connection with the scandal.
