 Will the president of Brazil be impeached?That question and the story surrounding it are first up today on CNN STUDENT NEWS.Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is the first female leader of the federal republic.She was elected in 2010 and reelected in 2014.Brazil's lower house of Congress voted on Sunday to impeach her.And if the Senate also approves that, President Rousseff would be suspended and would have to defend herself in a trial.This is all happening as Brazil prepares to host the Olympics this August.

 
President Rousseff is a polarizing figure in Brazil.Critics blamed her for the nation's worst recession in decades.A huge corruption scandal involving Brazil's government-run oil company has led to the resignations of numerous politicians, including dozens in the president's political party, the worker's party.But Rousseff herself has not been accused of corruption, and she says she hasn't committed any impeachable crimes.She and her supporters promised to fight the proceedings.
 
On South America's west coast, as the country of Ecuador picks up the pieces from Saturday evening's earthquake, President Rafael Correa says rebuilding will cost billions.Help is pouring from all over the region, as well as the European and the United Nations.Communications are out in many parts of Ecuador.Survivors need water.It's hard to get that to them because the highways are in such bad shape.That's also a problem for rescue efforts.
 
The death toll right now is sitting in more than 270 people, with 2,500 others hurt in the aftermath of this 7.8 magnitude earthquake, a devastating earthquake for Ecuador.Those numbers are expected to continue rising as officials got a closer look at the extent of the damage.Part of the problem is with the infrastructure in Ecuador.Some of the hardest hit areas right now are essentially inaccessible.
