Amazon river ‘longer than Nile’

Scientists in Brazil are claiming to have established as a scientific fact that the Amazon is the longest river in the world. The claim follows an expedition to Peru that is said to have established a new starting point further south. It puts the Amazon at 6,800km (4,250 miles) compared to the Nile’s 6,695km.
