World Cup 2014: Rio police simulate riot in training - ( PH1L1PN33 )

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Riot police in Rio de Janeiro receive training from their French counterparts ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals. Police use rubber bullets, tear gas and tennis balls to simulate a riot. French police captain Jean-Louis Sanche says Brazilian police are used to skirmishes in the favelas but not large-scale riots. ‘The way you work in the favelas is different to the way you work in large events, there’s a difference in the way you use your resources. We are here to pass on this knowledge,’ he says
