Brazilians protest against president amid oil scandal

Critics say Rousseff must have known about corruption as accusations engulf the state-owned oil company Petrobras.

    Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff is just three months into her second term as leader but she is facing growing discontent.

    Her approval rating has dropped to just 13 percent and protests against her are being planned across the country on Sunday.

    They come as her government is embroiled in a corruption scandal involving the state oil company, Petrobras.
