"Brazil's new government puts out 300 soldiers in the state of Ceará in the country's northeastern corner in order to curb violence. The decision, taken by the minister of justice Sérgio Moro, comes after a series of attacks in recent months against government buildings and banks."
"Most of the attacks have taken place in the state capital, the city of Fortaleza, where the main streets are deserted in the middle of the day and the garbage has begun to gather in droves because waste collection has been cancelled."
"the Brazilian media have published leaked intelligence reports that explains the violence by criminal gangs who have responded to attempts to limit their influence over some of the prisons in the country, including by separating the inmates to and interfere with phone signals. Brazil is on the third place, after the USA and China, among the world's countries with the most prisoners."
"the Country's new president of Jair Bolsonaro, who was sworn in on new year's day, has promised to crack down on crime."
