Another Amazon activist killed

Adelino Ramos's murder comes days after the slaying of Jose Claudio Ribeiro da Silva.

    Brazilian police have confirmed the killing of yet another Amazon environmental campaigner.

    Adelino Ramos was known for openly denouncing those who illegally fell trees in the rainforest. His is just the latest in a long line of murders of such activists.
