Brazil’s leader fights tears as report uncovers dictatorship’s legacy of torture — Brazil's normally stern President, Dilma Rousseff, was overcome with emotion Wednesday as the country's National Truth Commission delivered her a damning 2,000-page report on the killings, disappearances and acts of torture committed by government agents during the country's military dictatorship.

Toronto research firm rocks clubby world of India Inc. — A series of scathing reports by a small Toronto investment research house targeting some of India's corporate heavyweights is riveting the country's business community, and sparking intense scrutiny of the state of corporate governance in one of the world's hottest economies. Veritas Investment Research Corp.

Brazilian police under scrutiny as high civilian death rate takes spotlight — Why, when so much else in Brazil is getting better, does the rate of violence - particularly murders by guns and at the hand of police - remain so stubbornly high? That's the question at the forefront of public debate here, spurred by a confluence of events in recent weeks.

Brazil’s ambitious HIV treatment plan based on Canadian concept — They make several furtive passes of the front door of Pela Vidda before they duck inside and mumble a request at the front desk. They are whisked upstairs, where a calm counsellor speaks to them for a few minutes, then swabs the inside of their mouths and whips out a little plastic tray.

Brazil’s doomsday economics: Living with the ghost of hyperinflation — When Monica Tostes and her family renovated their apartment in Rio a few years ago, she insisted on one thing: A pantry. Space might be limited here in one of the world's most expensive real-estate markets, but she needed somewhere to store the haul from the massive shopping trip she does at the start of each month.

Brazil stocks tumble on Dilma Rousseff re-election — A sharp drop in Brazil's financial markets signalled investors are unsure whether the newly re-elected President Dilma Rousseff will take the necessary steps to reinvigorate the country's stalled economy. Bovespa fell 6 per cent in the opening minutes of trading and finished the day down about 2.8 per cent.

Globe in Brazil: Dilma Rousseff narrowly wins second term as president — Brazil has re-elected president Dilma Rousseff on a razor-thin margin of 50.99 per cent of votes with 95 per cent of votes counted over centre-right challenger Aecio Neves in one of the narrowest and most dramatic elections Brazil has seen since the return to democracy.

Brazilians head to polls in divisive presidential run-off — Voting is underway in the most uncertain and divisive election Brazil has faced in at least a generation. A flurry of last minute polls, released on the eve of Sunday's run-off vote for president, offered something for both sides: some showed incumbent President Dilma Rousseff with a slight lead, while others showed her in a statistical tie with Aecio Neves, who just a month ago looked like an also-ran with no serious chance.

Brazil voters take a second look at poll leader Aecio Neves — Back in June, a Brazilian reporter asked Aecio Neves how he would feel if he were elected this country's next president. It was something of a hypothetical question five months ago, since polls showed that President Dilma Rousseff had a massive lead over Mr. Neves in her bid for re-election.

Close election race for Uruguay’s president — For years, Daniela Leal saw only one good choice at the ballot box: She voted for the Frente Amplio, the Broad Front, the coalition of Uruguayan leftist parties that prioritized the well-being of families like hers. Ms. Leal, 43, her four children and one grandchild live in a cement-block house with a corrugated tin roof in a slum on the edge of the capital.
