At least 140 people were killed in the biggest city in South America during the last two weeks in the rising tide of violence. This was announced by the Department of Public Security of Sao Paulo.
Murder in the Brazilian city began to rise sharply in September - a month in which 144 people were killed, according to a department's website, where it is reported that a total of 982 homicides occurred in the city during the first nine months of the year.
The victims included 90 police officers, most of whom were shot in the line of duty.
Official representative of the public security department, who requested anonymity, said the killing of police officers out on the orders of the leaders of an organized crime gang in prison.
