BRASILIA, Brazil, October 27, 2006 (ENS) - The rate of deforestation in the Amazon has slowed down according to figures released by the Brazilian government today. About 13,000 square kilometers (5,019 square miles) of rainforest were destroyed in the 12 months between August 2005 and 2006. This is about half the rate reported during the same period between 2003 and 2004, and the second lowest rate since recordkeeping began in 1988.
