Brazil's Bolsonaro says army may help fight Amazon fires

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said on Friday that the army could be sent to help combat the fires sweeping through the Amazon rainforest, and that a decision will be taken later in the day, ONA reports citing Reuters.

Bolsonaro, under growing international pressure over the unfolding crisis, told reporters in Brasilia that he will meet with ministers later on Friday to discuss the next steps.
