More than 1,000 troops are patrolling the streets of the Brazilian city of Vitoria after a police strike led to a crime wave that has left dozens of people dead.

Defence Minister Raul Jungmann said the soldiers and national guard officers would stay until calm was restored.

Criminals ran amok in the south-eastern city after police stopped patrolling on Saturday in a row over pay.

Brazilian TV has broadcast scenes of looting, shootings and carjackings.
