    Brazil's Supreme Court has ordered an investigation into 74 new politicians, including a third of current President Michel Temer's cabinet.

    This follows information obtained as part of a plea-bargaining deal with the former president of Brazil's largest engineering company, Odebrecht.

    The probe has shaken the region's political establishment as a multinational investigation into who received almost $1bn in kickbacks in 10 Latin American countries widens.
