Brazil's Moro to stay if he can tap new head of police - source

BRASILIA (Reuters) - The head of Brazil’s federal police will be replaced and Justice Minister Sergio Moro has agreed to stay on as long as he can name the new federal police chief, a person with knowledge of the matter said on Thursday.

The same person had said earlier on Thursday that Moro was threatening to quit if President Jair Bolsonaro replaced federal police chief Mauricio Valeixo.
