Brazil - A mob attempted to lynch two murder suspects in Salinopolis, a coastal town of 40,000 people about 1,600 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. After failing to capture their targets, they came up with a better plan and looted then burned down two police stations, several police cars, and motorcycles and a courthouse. 20 prisoners were set free and one rioter was killed.
