    The Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht has admitted paying millions of dollars in bribes in a dozen countries.

    Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has expressed regret after acknowledging that his re-election campaign received illegal funding. But he denies any involvement.

    The scandal has forced one of the biggest infrastructure projects in the country to be halted.
