    A decision by Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro to reinstate commemorations of a military coup that happened 55 years ago has led to a controversy.

    Bolsonaro says honouring history will unite the country. But survivors of the killing and torture campaign say what happened during the military rule should be condemned, not celebrated.
