Brazil’s Rousseff suspended as Senate

Brazilian Senate voted in favor for an impeachment trial against President Dilma Rousseff, suspending the president from office.
President Rousseff will be suspended until the Senate submits the case to a final trial, which will happen in up to 180 days. Vice President Michel Temer will take over in the period.
The Senate gave the go-ahead for the impeachment trial by 55-22 in the early hours of Thursday.
In the impeachment trial, it will take a two-thirds majority to remove Rousseff from the presidency permanently.
Analysts say this may not be difficult as the opposition managed to get two-thirds in the first voting.
