APTOPIX Brazil Rio Violence

Hundreds of police officers and troops backed by helicopters and several armored vehicles invaded the shantytown early Sunday. They took control of the slum in what is the first step before installing police units to help pacify the poor community. Police did not face any resistance from drug trafficking gangs in the raid to help bring peace near Maracana stadium ahead of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. (AP Photo/Victor R. Caivano)
