Personnel of Rio de Janeiro's feared military police battalion BOPE, carry out an operation at Guararapes shantytown on April 29, 2013 before the specially-trained police force known as Police Pacification Units or UPP, can be deployed in. The operation, jointly held by the BOPE, the Shock Battalion and the Canine Operations Unit (BAC), is part of a government strategy designed to combat crime and reassert full control of the Rio de Janeiro metropolis ahead of the upcoming FIFA Confederations Cup, the football World Cup of 2014 and the Olympic Games two years later.
