An operation by Brazilian military police in Rio de Janeiro on Friday left at least 13 people dead in a number of city center favelas, authorities said. They were among 14 people who sustained gunshot wounds in the operation close to the Santa Teresa neighborhood, health officials said. Firefights often break out in favelas during battles between rival gangs or when the police launch operations to combat drug trafficking. The police said they conducted operations from Friday morning due to "shoot-outs in the area caused by the dispute between rival criminal groups," with local reports indicating that two gangs had been in a turf war since Wednesday. In the Fallet area, security forces were "met by gunfire and there was a battle," the police said. Authorities said they had seized three assault rifles, 12 pistols and six grenades, pictures of which were posted on the military police's Twitter page.

Vila Mimosa is one of the most notorious areas of prostitution in Brazil. While sex tourists visit Copacabana en masse, Vila Mimosa attracts a more local clientele. A few thousand women work in this neighborhood in the north of Rio de Janeiro—estimations of the number of women varies between 2, and 3, —while the area claims to receive 4, visitors daily. The neighborhood is a network of dilapidated buildings, pool halls, shops, and brothels posing as bars— prostitution isn't illegal in Brazil, but owning and running a brothel is. Behind the storefronts, you'll find thousands of tiny, dark, almost suffocating rooms, where the prostitutes take their clients. But the area is also home to dozens of families. Walking around, you are constantly confronted by a parade of vermin, bums, drugs, thongs, bugs, breasts, dogs, women, men, and babies running around in diapers.
