Irish Examiner - - World News -

Brazil­ian au­thor­i­ties say that at least 13 peo­ple have been killed in two at­tempted bank rob­beries.

Mil­i­tary po­lice in the north­east­ern state of Ceara say the at­tempted heists be­gan in the down­town area of the city of Mi­la­gres.

The rob­bers at one bank had taken sev­eral peo­ple hostage when po­lice sur­rounded the area. A fire­fight broke out, leav­ing sev­eral dead. Au­thor­i­ties have yet to iden­tify the dead. The mayor of Mi­la­gres told lo­cal me­dia that two chil­dren, be­tween 10 and 13 years old, were killed.
