Brazil's far-right president congratulated the police on Sunday for last week's raid in a favela in Rio de Janeiro that left 28 dead and sparked serious allegations of abuse by the officers.

Jair Bolsonaro refused to treat as victims the 27 suspects who were killed in the operation, and took advantage of the brutal event, in which a police inspector also died, to attack the media and left-wing political forces. EFE
