#Brazil’s largest city was plunged into darkness as thick plumes of black smoke from Amazon forest fires block out sunlight.

The largest rainforest on the planet has been burning for the past three weeks.

It comes just weeks after President Jair Bolsonaro fired the head of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) amid rows over deforestation data.

Conservationists accuse Bolsonaro of encouraging farmers to clear the land by setting fire to it.
