In Brazil, a state governor is refusing to back down on his prison reforms – despite retaliation from organised criminal gangs.
Prisons built to hold captured gang members have instead become centres of power for the criminal syndicates and authorities have vowed that must not be allowed.
The gangs launched a wave of attacks in Ceara state, prompting President Bolsonaro to send in national troops and the state government to crack down on the prisons even further.
Al Jazeera’s Daniel Schweimler reports.

Joseph Smith says:

Brazil is a country full of wasted potential! Brazil could be as powerful as USA is now…, yet it so poor, violent, and backward. Brazil has the land, great climate, natural resources, etc…The primary reason for Brazil's failure is the income inequality, and now the USA is going down this path.
