Amazon tribe faces 'annihilation'

A remote tribe living amid the depths of the Amazon rainforest is facing extinction at the hands of loggers, campaigners warn.

Armed loggers working in Brazil's vast forests have driven the tribe from several villages, according to Indian rights group Survival International.

Survival urged Brazil's government to act quickly to protect the tribe.

The group is angry that a judge lifted a ban and allowed loggers back into in tribal forest.
