10 rifles and a couple pistols were stolen from the army barracks downtown. a gang rendered
the guard and used physical violence against the soldiers during the robbery.
next day, an army unit consisting of 600 soldiers went to rescue the weapons on 3 favelas dominated by the drug trade responsible for the theft. the dealers shot on the soldiers. the army brought in more troops. 1500 men occupy 6 favelas now. their strategy is to inflict economy losses on the drug businness by occupying the squares and streets where they sell... there has been numerous episodes of confrontation:even a bomb was thrown on the army. it's been already a week of urban warfare.

I'm assuming this is Rio, or some other part of Brazil. Could you be more specific?
