Brazil has stepped up security in Rio de Janeiro amid a rise in violence by organised crime gangs.

President Michel Temer sent 8,500 troops to patrol the city’s streets as the authorities recognise much of Rio de Janeiro is out of their control.

The president made a surprise visit to Rio over the weekend accompanied by four of his ministers to discuss the security operation.

He says soldiers on the streets is the just the first phase of security measures.

“A second phase will deal exactly with the direct and objective combat against criminal organisations. And the arms issue. T his is a very worrying topic here in Rio de Janeiro. The number of existing weapons is alarming here in Rio de Janeiro,” he explained.

Three people on average were killed each day by stray bullets in the first six months of the year. The mounting number of deaths, plus criminal assaults and increasing shootouts between drug traffickers and police is behind the military presence in the city.

Last year, 85,000 troops were used to bolster security around the venues of the 2016 Summer Olympics held in Rio.

Public security experts say Brazil’s worst recession in decades is exacerbating the situation.

The Kurdish-speaking fighters in this video are seen giving each other cover as they cross from street to street. A yellow patch with a red star is visible on the uniform of one of the fighters, indicating he is a member of the YPG Kurdish forces allied with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

The YPG issued a statement on their Facebook page on August 10 describing ongoing fighting between their forces and the Islamic State in Raqqa. The Syrian Democratic Forces said they killed 12 Islamic State fighters and captured two more in fighting in Raqqa on August 10.

Local activists also said 47 people were killed in airstrikes by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces on the city in recent days. Credit: YouTube/Furat FM via Storyful
