Fortaleza Brazil and Paris France Temples
Ground was broken Tuesday 15 November 2011 on the Fortaleza Brazil Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The groundbreaking was presided over by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
Elder Bednar said that "this city will always be better and different because of the temple to be built here" ("Ground broken for 7th temple in Brazil", Deseret News, Wednesday 16 November 2011, B3).
Also worthy of note, it has been officially announced that the Paris France Temple is underway. According to Le Parisien, "It's now a done deal. The city council has just given its green light by validating the building permit filed by La Fonciere des Regions on behalf of the Mormon Church" (Ibid.).
