Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff comforts victim's relatives in Santa Maria, southern Brazil, Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013. Rousseff cut short a visit to Chile early Sunday to go to Santa Maria after a deadly nightclub fire. Flames raced through a crowded nightclub in southern Brazil early Sunday, killing more than 200 people as panicked party-goers stampeded toward the exits and gasped for air in the smoke-filled space, authorities said. It appeared to be the world's deadliest nightclub fire in more than a decade. (AP Photo/Roberto Stuckert Filho/Brazil's Presidency)
