Brazil considers Indian land case





Supreme Court judges in Brazil are debating how to proceed with a key indigenous land rights ruling after one justice asked for more time.

The court has been asked to rule on whether a reservation in the Amazonian state of Roraima can remain a single unbroken territory.

Indian leaders in Brazil say the case could set a crucial precedent for the protection of their ancestral lands.

But rice farmers say they could be forced to leave the area.
