Air crash fraudsters arrested


Brazilian police have arrested at least 20 people for fraud after pretending to be relatives of air crash victims who died leaving no heir.

Officials say the gang collected over a million euros through their scheme.

Some of the victims had died in the 2009 Air France crash that killed 228 people.
