SAO PAULO, March 4 (Reuters) - Brazil's former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has been detained for questioning in the latest phase of a sweeping anti-graft investigation, a source confirmed to Reuters.
Lula was targeted due to evidence that he profited personally from a bribery scheme at state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA, according to a police statement on Friday.
