    At least 25 people have been killed after heavily armed police stormed Jacarezinho, one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest favelas, in pursuit of drug traffickers in what was the deadliest raid in the city’s history. About 200 members of Rio’s civil police launched the raid into Jacarezinho in the early hours despite a 2020 supreme court order outlawing such incursions during the coronavirus pandemic. While police hailed the raid a success, critics said it was a ‘massacre’
