Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has announced plans to Militarize Key Airports, ports, and borders in order to combat organized crime. The decision comes after a criminal gang set fire to buses in Rio de Janeiro as an act of retaliation. The armed forces will be deployed to increase patrols and monitor international airports and ports in Rio and Sao Paulo. The government's plan also includes increasing the number of federal police forces, improving cooperation between law enforcement entities, and investing in state-of-the-art technology for intelligence gathering.
