Tens of thousands of people evacuated from the Canadian city of Ft. McMurray because of raging forest fires face a long wait to return home, an official said Thursday. Some 4,000 people who fled to the north of the city and were in danger of becoming stranded have been airlifted to Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said, adding that the hope is to airlift 8,000 to safety by the end of the day.

Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's Supreme Court suspended a powerful lawmaker at the center of efforts to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, on grounds he tried to obstruct a probe into his alleged corruption.
