Fam­ily die in drug war

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - WORLD -

BRAZIL­IAN po­lice said Tues­day it was in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of six mem­bers of the same fam­ily in Rio de Janeiro, in which the only sur­vivor was a seven-month old baby, who was found among the bod­ies.

Ac­cord­ing to Brazil­ian press re­ports, the mas­sacre re­lated to a set­tling of scores be­tween drug traf­fick­ers.

They named 19-year-old Bruno de Souza, known as “In­dio,” as the pri­mary tar­get of the as­sas­sins.

The slaugh­ter took place overnight be­tween Mon­day and Tues­day in Man­garat­iba, 60 miles (100 kilo­me­tres) south of Rio.
