Brazil troops sent to ‘inspect’ restive prisons

Sharing is Caring

Brazilian authorities say they are deploying 1,000 troops to “clean out” arms and cellphones from restive prisons while police struggle to end a deadly gang face-off in one northern penitentiary. The troops — the same ones used during the Olympic Games in Rio last year — don’t have the constitutional authority to take control of the prisons. They will only inspect the jails and remove contraband weapons, explosives and phones.
