Inmates ordering attacks on streets of Brazil

Around 60 recent attacks in Santa Catarina are thought to be the work of avenging inmates.

    A gang of criminals inside Brazilian prisons are being blamed for a series of revenge attacks on the outside.

    It's thought the violence in Santa Catarina state is in retaliation for prison guards attacking inmates with tear gas.
