Hostages die in foiled Brazil bank robberies

Deadly bank robbery shoot-out in Brazil kills 14

Secretary of Security delegate André Costa told Brazilian broadcaster Globo that two suspects were arrested.

Lielson Macedo Landim, the mayor of Milagres, told G1 the hostages were executed by the criminal group and not killed by police fire. They had been returning from a nearby airport when some of the robbers seized them.

Ceara had the third highest number of violent deaths in Brazil, according to Brazilian website O Povo, with 2,360 casualties-or a rate of 26 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants-registered in the first half of 2018.

It said six gang members were killed and "another six people died from gunshots". Brazilian authorities say that at least 12 people have been killed in two attempted bank robberies in Milagres downtown area.

His account could not be immediately verified, as police did not respond to numerous email and phone requests for more information about the shootout or how the hostages died. Authorities also seized three vehicles, several firearms and explosives.

The gang escaped in two vans without taking any money, G1 said.

She said the attempted night-time robbery was interrupted by a police unit that had been tracking a gang responsible for similar bank robberies in the area, in which explosives were used to blow apart automatic teller machines.

"I've never seen anything like it".

"I heard screaming and people crying", he added.

Shaken by the violence, the municipality of Milagres suspended most of its activities on Friday and asked residents to stay at home "until order is restored".

Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the world, suffering almost 64,000 murders a year ago - a homicide rate of 30.8 per 100,000 inhabitants that is three times higher than the level the United Nations considers to be endemic violence.
