Brazil's Dilma Rousseff 'defiant to the end'

Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff has condemned the move to impeach her as a "coup" and a "farce", denying she has committed any crimes.

She was addressing the nation on TV for the first time since senators voted overnight to suspend her for budgetary violations and put her on trial.

Vice-President Michel Temer has now officially taken over as interim leader and has appointed his own team.

Wyre Davies reports.
