War in Rio

For the past 4 days Rio has been in the grip of fear and panic. Widespread criminal attacks all over the city have kept the population indoors and left a lot of burned cars and buses everywhere.
The police and the army are invading favelas ruled by drug lords and reclaiming them to the State. Tanks and heavily armed elite soldiers became a common sight and shootouts start without warning.
Rio promised a safe city for the World Cup and the Olympic Games. Looks like they have some messy, heavy-duty cleaning to do.
