Brazil Reinforces Borders With Paraguay, Bolivia, Estado Says
Brazil has deployed a 1,500-strong security force to patrol borders with Paraguay and Bolivia to curb the smuggling of weapons and drugs by organized crime, O Estado de S. Paulo reported.
More than 80 percent of the arms and drugs smuggled into Brazil enter the country through those borders, the Sao Paulo- based newspaper reported, citing Brazil’s Federal Police.
The Federal Police has coordinated an operation to reinforce border security since March, Estado said.
