Amazon fires: Brazil to reject G7 offer of $22m aid
ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Brazilian government has said it will reject an offer of aid from G7 countries to help tackle fires in the Amazon rainforest.

French President Emmanuel Macron - who hosted a G7 summit that ended on Monday - said $22m (£18m) would be released.

But Brazilian ministers say the money is not needed and accuse foreign powers of wanting control of the Amazon.

Satellite data shows fires - mostly in the Amazon - are burning at record levels.
