    Brazil’s tourism minister has resigned less than two months before the country hosts the Olympics, as the government of the interim president, Michel Temer, lost its third minister in a month to a sweeping graft inquiry of the state oil company Petrobras.

    Henrique Alves, the tourism minister, was one of two dozen officials named in plea bargain testimony by a former Petrobras executive linking Temer and several of his closest allies to Brazil’s biggest corruption scandal ever.

    How very unexpected.
