Lula behind bars: Brazil's ex-president faces uncertain future

Former Brazilian leader Lula da Silva surrendered to police on Saturday to begin serving a 12-year jail sentence for corruption.

    Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has some home comforts now that he is in prison for corruption and money laundering.
