The accident on November 5 last year near Mariana in Brazil's Minas Gerais state began when a tailings dam at Samarco mine failed, unleashing a flood of polluted water and mud into the River DoceBrazilian prosecutors have filed a US$43.4 billion lawsuit against BHP Billiton and Vale over the Samarco mine dam burst that killed 19 and wreaked environmental havoc. The authorities "estimate the preliminary value for repairs to be 155 billion reals," the public prosecutor's office in the state of Minas Gerais said in a statement. Brazilian-owned Vale and Anglo-Australian BHP, which co-own the Samarco iron ore facility, had already agreed to a separate settlement of US$6.2 billion with the Brazilian government in March.

Demonstrators protest over the Flint, Michigan contaminated water crisis outside of the venue where the Democratic U.S. presidential candidates' debate was being held in FlintBy Timothy Gardner WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Wednesday will visit Flint, Michigan, a city struggling with the effects of lead-poisoned drinking water, as questions linger over whether his environmental regulators could have acted more urgently to address the crisis. Obama will get updates from federal officials on the response in Flint, a mostly African-American city where more than 40 percent of the city's 100,000 people live in poverty. "Like you, I'll use my voice to call for change and help lift up your community," Obama wrote last week to Amariyanna Copeny, an eight-year-old Flint girl who has marched in protests about the crisis and had asked to meet him.

A coalition of opposition groups fighting under the name "Fatah Halab," or Aleppo Conquest, launched an assault on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces with a tunnel bombUS Secretary of State John Kerry warned Syria's Bashar al-Assad of "repercussions" if his regime flouts a new truce under negotiation, as talks to halt the violence shifted to Berlin on Wednesday. Russia has said a new ceasefire to halt fighting in Aleppo could be imminent, with Syria's divided northern city hit by a wave of violence that has killed more than 270 people since April 22. With the UN Security Council to meet on the crisis later Wednesday, diplomatic efforts to stem the violence shifted to Berlin, where German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was to hold talks with UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura, Syria's main opposition leader Riad Hijab and France's top diplomat Jean-Marc Ayrault.
