Ravages of Brazilian floods remain

Former residents want to know where aid money went and why their homes are still in ruins.

    It was a year ago that floods and landslides killed more than 900 people in rural Brazil. The disaster was one of the worst in the country's history and left more than 31,000 people without homes.

    Because most homes still remain in ruins and rebuilding has been slow, frustrated former residents have accused the government of corruption and neglect.

    Many want to know what happened to all the aid money earmarked for repairing homes and roads.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from the devastated town of Teresopolis.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
