Brazilian prosecutors filed corruption charges against President Michel Temer on Monday, a step toward possibly making him the country's first serving leader to face a criminal trial.

In a filing with the Supreme Court, Prosecutor General Rodrigo Janot accused Temer of receiving a 500,000-real (about $150,000) bribe from the boss of a meatpacking company implicated in a corruption scandal.
