People gather around the body of Thiago Franklino de Lima (21), who was killed in the Coque slum. With around 90 homicides per 100,000 of its population, Recife is more than twice as deadly as Rio de Janeiro. In Coque young people have been known to kill each other for control over strategic areas from which to rob motorists.
