Brazil: Union Leader Killed in Police Strike Violence

Fernaziari was discovered dead Thursday in his car, having been shot several times.

While there are no immediate suspects, the murder comes after several unionized bus drivers in the neighboring state capital of Vitoria had reported being threatened by people they identified as parapolice, who said their buses would be set on fire if they continued circulating.

After the murder, a spokesman for the Sindirodoviarios said their members would stop driving.

"It's as if there was a curfew decreed by criminals," the unnamed spokesperson told reporters.

Since state police walked off the job last weekend in a bid for more pay, more than 100 people have been reported killed in a wave of violence which has engulfed the oil producing state, which borders Rio de Janeiro.

State Governor Paulo Hartung, allied with President Michel Temer who came to power in a parliamentary coup last year, called the police strike a "kidnapping."

The violence has continued despite the deployment of soldiers, who earlier in the week used teargas to break up and anti-police demonstration in Vitoria.
