RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — BOPE (Special Police Operations Battalion) officers take position on the roof top of a school at the Rocinha slum where police inaugurated a pacification unit in Rio de Janeiro yesterday. Government control over the shantytown is seen as strategic as Rio prepares to host the 2014 soccer World Cup and 2016 Olympics. (Photo: AP)
