Death shines light on Brazil police brutality

Torture and killing of man raises concerns over security forces ahead of next year's football World Cup.

    Ten police officers in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro have been charged with torturing and killing a man from the city's largest shanty town.

    The case highlights the ongoing problem of disappearances and police brutality as the city prepares to host the football World Cup next year and the 2016 Olympic games.
