Rios drug war PICS

After recent efforts by officials to pacify Rio's drug and gang-related violence ahead of the upcoming the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics Games, drug gangs struck out last week - attacking police stations and staging mass robberies.

After days of preparation, Brazilian security forces launched a raid in the Complexo de Alemo, where between 500 and 600 drug traffickers were holed up. At least 42 people were killed in the violence last week
