23 killed in Rio crime crackdown

“At least 23 people have been killed in five days of clashes as Brazilian security forces seek to crush drug gangs and impose law and order in the violent slums of Rio de Janeiro.

The gangs are fighting back by opening fire on police stations and setting cars and buses ablaze, police said.

Police have deployed armoured vehicles, helicopters and thousands of heavily armed agents for the widespread crackdown in the slums – known here as favelas.”
