Criminals behind bars have delivered orders to destroy petrol stations, bridges and police stations in Fortaleza – while running prisons from the inside.

The violence comes after Brazilian authorities led a crackdown on living conditions in prisons.

Now, a group of Brazil’s senior regional justice ministers have called for these gang attacks to be reclassified as terrorism, in the hope of securing tougher sentences.

Sky’s chief correspondent Stuart Ramsey reports from the scene.
