They were shot dead by police after a rush-hour car chase that caused traffic chaos near one of Rio's main bridges, according to reports.


More than 4,000 soldiers, backed by armoured vehicles and aircraft, entered the favela complexes of Alemao and Mare, which are largely run by heavily armed drug traffickers.
