“Riot police in Rio de Janeiro have undergone training in crowd control ahead of the Brazil football World Cup.

The exercise involved the military police, with 50 of them playing the part of unruly protesters.

A helicopter monitored the “march” next to Rio’s Sambadrome in order to inform the actions of agents on the ground.

After fresh violent street unrest, the Brazilian government recently announced plans to deploy up to 170,000 security personnel during the World Cup.”
