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.

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.
