Brazilian President accused of ‘encouraging’ Amazon burning

The President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro is being accused of introducing policies that have encouraged illegal burning in the Amazon to create farmland.

The world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon, is burning at a record rate and has seen nearly 10,000 fires in the last week.

The Brazilian military is now fighting thousands of fires whilst international help is on the way to further contain the spread.
