Complexo do Alemão

Complexo do Alemão is a group of favelas (shnty towns) in northern Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On June 27, 2007, just a few days before the Live Earth concert in Copacabana and the opening ceremony of the XV Pan American Games, Complexo do Alemão was the stage of a huge operation led by the Military Police against the gangs formed by drug dealers.

On November 25, 2010, the Special Ops Squad (BOPE) together with the Brazilian Navy, invaded the Vila Cruzeiro favela, in Rio de janeiro, in order to set up an UPP (Portuguese: Unidade de Policia pacificadora, English: Pacifying Police Unit) in this favela.
