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.

    Brazil's former president is not missing out on seeing his favourite football team in action, despite being locked up.

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

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from the southern city of Curitiba.
