Sixteen Charged Over Brazil Nightclub Fire

Brazilian authorities have lodged criminal charges against 16 people over the nightclub fire that killed nearly 241 people in the Brazilian city of Santa Maria earlier this year.

Police are seeking murder charges against nine people, including the nightclub's two owners, three of their partners and three band members performing at the club when the blaze broke out.
