Toll in Brazil dam disaster rises to 115 dead, 248 missing The toll from a dam collapse last week at a mine in southeast Brazil has risen to 115 dead and 248 missing, according to officials Saturday. The emergency service for the state of Minas Gerais, where the January 25 disaster occurred near the town of Brumadinho, said the search was ongoing for bodies. All those listed as missing are presumed dead, with no survivors being found over the past week. Virtually all the dead and missing were workers at the iron ore mine, buried under an avalanche of sludgy mining waste when the dam collapsed above the facility's cafeteria and main administrative area.

Brazilian international footballer Lucas Paqueta scored his first Serie A goal for new club AC Milan on Sunday and dedicated it to the victims of the fire at his former club Flamengo.

Ten young people aged between 14 and 17 died when a fire ripped through a youth training facility at the Rio de Janiero club on Friday.

Paqueta joined Flamengo as a ten-year-old and had spent many years at the training facility, before moving to the professional team in 2016 where he played until signing a 35-million-euro ($40 million) deal with AC Milan last month.

"It was a very difficult time for me," Paqueta told Sky Sports Italia.

"I am living a dream playing for Milan and scoring my first Serie A goal, but it was also a dream for me to be in the Flamengo youth academy and I can't forget those who were experiencing the same thing."

Paqueta played 65 matches and scored 13 goals for Flamengo.

He made his debut for Brazil in September, in a 2-0 friendly victory over the United States.

The Brazilian helped Milan to a 3-0 win over Cagliari on Sunday.

Cagliari defender Luca Ceppitelli turned into his own net before Paqueta volleyed in the second after 22 minutes, with another new signing Polish forward Krzysztof Piatek sealing the three points.

AC Milan pushed their unbeaten league run to six games as they stay fourth and in the Champions League berths, and just four points off third-placed city rivals Inter Milan.

Death toll in Brazil dam disaster rises to 134

Death toll in Brazil dam disaster rises to 134 The toll from a dam collapse at a mine in southeast Brazil has risen to 134 deaths after more than a week of searches, with 199 missing, authorities said Monday.The count showed the gradual recovery operation of bodies more than a week after the January 25 disaster at the dam, owned by Brazilian mining giant Vale, near the town of Brumadinho.Those listed as missing are presumed dead, but not yet located under the layers of muddy mining waste released when the tailings dam broke apart. Almost all the victims were workers at the mine.A fire services spokesman said it was possible that not all the bodies would be located and recovered."After a while, because of the decomposition of the bodies, it becomes impossible to recover the remains. But until that moment comes, even if we have to stay four, five or six months, the fire offices will work without stopping," he said.The disaster occurred three years after a similar dam collapse tragedy at another mine in the same region which was part-owned by Vale.That 2015 incident, close to the town of Mariana, had a lower death toll of 19, but was considered Brazil's worst environmental disaster because the mining waste released ravaged whole ecosystems along hundreds of miles (kilometers) of waterways.President Jair Bolsonaro, in a statement read to Congress as he recovered in hospital from abdominal surgery, said excessive regulation of Brazil's mining industry was partly to blame for the Brumadinho dam collapse."The government has dozens of overlapping monitoring structures which stop people producing but didn't prevent the Brumadinho tragedy," he said."It's not with bigger government that we are going to solve these problems, but with more efficient government," he said.

The Campeonato Brasileiro Série A , commonly referred as Brasileirão ( Brazilian Portuguese: [brazilejˈɾãw]), is a Brazilian professional league for men' s football clubs.

The former Brazil player discussed Lucas Paquetá after AC Milan agreed a deal in principle for the 21-year-old Flamengo attacking midfielder. General manager Leonardo revealed the Serie A side have a "basic agreement" with Flamengo to bring highly rated attacking midfielder Paquetá to Milan in
