Exclusive: The war for Brazil’s superhighway of drugs

Manaus, the capital of Brazil’s northern Amazonas state, has increasingly become the scene of violent confrontations between gangs. Located near the Colombian border, the city has become a hub for drug-trafficking. Despite a hardline response from police, the gangs operating in Manaus are particularly dangerous. Many of the drug deals are also struck by gangleaders already behind bars. Our correspondent in Brazil, Nicolas Ransom, brings us this exclusive report.
