Brazil to give money on development of new security measures against violence

Brazil will invest nearly US$3.3 billion (2.6 billion EUR) on violence reduction.

The Justice Ministry plan calls for the construction of prisons and scholarships for police officers, said the project's coordinator Ronaldo Teixeira. It was to be announced formally by President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Monday night.

The government aims to cut the nation's homicide rate from 29 per 100,000 residents to about 11 per 100,000 residents by 2012, Teixeira said.

The plan will also focus on battling corruption and other sources of criminality, but will not increase the 575,000 police officers on the streets in Latin America's largest country or upgrade their equipment.

Brazil plans to build 160 new prisons - each with a capacity for 400 inmates - and to implement educational opportunities for some of the nation's 400,000 inmates, Teixeira said.

The country's prisons are overcrowded and in poor condition, and many facilities are run by gang leaders behind bars.

It was either inability to analyze or pure cowardice, but the cruise missile attack on Syria had a purely political outcome that would not affect the outcome of the Syrian conflict. The US is obviously revisiting the Iraq crisis from 2003
