Brazil prepares 10k-strong riot force for World Cup
Brazilian authorities are preparing a 10,000-strong anti-riot force to help police control potential demonstrations during the World Cup this summer.
A justice ministry spokesman said Friday that the force “will shore up security in the 12 venue cities and have clearly defined functions to back up the police.”
The anti-riot force will be lead by a military police colonel and will consist of military and civil police officers, firefighters and logistics experts.
By the time of the opening game of the World Cup in Sao Paulo in June 2014, all the members of the force will have taken part in more than two years of training.
“The troop is not an ordinary force. We are only drafted in times of crisis, only for specific missions,” Brazilian newspaper Globo quoted Colonel Alexandre Augusto Aragon as saying.
