Ten robbers killed in foiled Brazil bank heist

\Ten suspected assailants were killed in Sao Paulo, after police in Sao Paulo foiled a coordinated attempt to blow up and rob from automatic bank tellers, according to local media.Sao Paulo state’s Public Security Secretariat said in a written note that approximately 25 suspects were involved in the attempts to blow up the machines to get at the cash inside, a common type of crime in Brazil.One of the banks was located next to a police station.

One police commander told the TV Globo network that the criminal group was “prepared for war” and, aside from arriving in five armoured cars, were armed with high-calibre rifles and body armour.Police arrived at the banks and confronted the assailants, who fled and led police on a rolling shootout through the city of Guararema, located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) east of central metropolitan Sao Paulo.The suspects broke into a home at one point and held resident hostage, “but police managed to free them” the note from the secretariat read, without providing more details.
