  • At least 12 dead in Brazil bank robbery shootout

Eleven people - six bank robbers and five hostages, including a child - were killed on Friday in a pre-dawn assault on two banks in a northeast Brazilian city foiled by police, the local mayor said.

Most of the deaths occurred when police opened fire on the robbers at the bank branches on the main street in Milagres in the interior of Ceará state, a statement by the governor's office said.

"The criminals killed the hostages and the police killed the criminals", he added.

Local media reported that five of the dead hostages were from the same family, including two children aged 14 and 13. "We are working to identify the victims", Kelia Jacome, spokeswoman for the governor said by telephone. Brazilian authorities say that at least 12 people have been killed in two attempted bank robberies in Milagres downtown area. They had been returning from a nearby airport when some of the robbers seized them. Their auto had been hijacked by the armed gang that took them as hostages.
