Brazil police make arrests in graft probe linked to Temer

Brazil's attorney general's office says police are making arrests connected to an investigation into whether President Michel Temer accepted bribes for favors to a company operating at the country's largest port.

The attorney general's office and police refused to identify those arrested. But G1 news portal said some were: Jose Yunes, a former aide to Temer; Joao Batista Lima, a former police coronel who is reportedly close to Temer; Antonio Celso Grecco, the president of a company which operates at the Port of Santos; and former minister Wagner Rossi.

G1 published a video Thursday showing Lima being put into an ambulance as a uniformed federal police officer watched. It also published a photo of Celso Grecco arriving at the federal police station in Sao Paulo.

Temer denies the charges.
