Brazil. Attack and release of prisoners in prison


On September 10, an operational command assaulted the maximum security prison of Joao Pessoa (northeastern Brazil). The group composed of about 20 individuals mounted on 4 vehicles, after knocking down the main gate completely attacked the prison infrastructure through bursts of rifles and explosives, managing to free 92 prisoners, of which only 41 were recaptured.

During the clashes a jailer would have died, while no casualties were reported in the group of assailants. As indicated by the bourgeois press, the main objective would be to free some members of a group dedicated to the assault on bank branches in Brazil

Attack the prison!

Free the prisoners!
