North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visits the Paektusan Hero Youth Power Station No. 3 in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News AgencyBy James Pearson PYONGYANG (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday hailed the country's recent nuclear test and launch of a satellite into space, as he opened the first congress of the country's ruling Workers' Party in 36 years. Wearing a dark western-style suit and grey tie, the 33-year-old was flanked by his top military aide and the titular head of state in a massive hall packed with military and party delegates, according to footage on North Korean state television aired late on Friday. During the congress, Kim is expected to further consolidate his control over a country that has grown increasingly isolated over its pursuit of nuclear weapons, including its fourth nuclear test in January, which led to U.N. resolutions in March tightening sanctions.

Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff reacts during a launch ceremony of Agricultural and Livestock Plan for 2016/2017, at the Planalto Palace in BrasiliaBy Maria Carolina Marcello BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's President Rousseff vowed on Friday to resist her removal from office until the end, as a Senate committee met to vote on whether the leftist leader should be put on trial in the full chamber for breaking budget laws. The impeachment process is expected to lead to Rousseff's suspension from office next week, pending a trial that could last six months, during which Vice President Michel Temer will replace her as acting president. Only five of the 21 members of the upper house committee have said they will vote against sending Rousseff for trial, meaning her opponents comfortably have the majority they need to recommend the full Senate vote on Wednesday to try her.
