Brazil's senate has voted to permanently remove president Dilma Rousseff from office.
The decision is the culmination of a year-long fight that paralysed Latin America's most powerful economy and exposed deep rifts among its people on everything from race relations to social spending.
Rousseff was on trial for breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the federal budget.
Brazil's first female president was accused of breaking fiscal responsibility laws in her management of the federal budget.
She denied wrongdoing, and frequently pointed out that previous presidents used similar accounting measures.
Ms Rousseff later denounced the senators who removed her from office.
She sent a tweet saying that "today is the day that 61 men, many of them charged and corrupt, threw 54 million Brazilian votes in the garbage."
Ms Rousseff won re-election in 2014 with more than 54 million votes.
