` Clean-Up Time in `Rio De Janeiro ‘ Shanty-Towns by ` Security Forces ‘ to Remove Armed Drug Gangs ‘

#AceWorldNews RIO DE JANEIRO – March 30 – According to a report by (AP) more than 1,400 police officers and Brazilian Marines rolled into a massive complex of slums near Rio de Janeiro’s international airport before dawn Sunday, in the latest security push ahead of this year’s World Cup.

Not a shot was fired as the Mare Complex of 15 slums became the latest impoverished area to see security forces move in to take control and try to push out heavily armed drug gangs that have ruled Rio’s shanty-towns for decades.
