Dom Phillips: Fresh charges over murder of British journalist

Police in Brazil have charged two more men over the murder of British journalist Dom Phillips and Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira. Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo reported on Sunday that Rubén Villar and Jânio Freitas de Souza had been charged with murder and hiding the bodies of Bruno Pereira and Dom Phillips. Bruno Pereira, 41, who had denounced illegal fishing in the region, was helping veteran journalist Dom Phillips, 57, with his research for a book on conservation efforts in the Amazon region.

One of the last photographs taken of Bruno Pereira and Dom Phillips shows them talking to Jânio Freitas de Souza in the riverside village of São Rafael.
