RIO'S world-famous carnival showed off its dark side with a parade of floats featuring gun-toting gangsters, sex-crazed skeletons and zombies.
One float was even made up to look like a favela with everyday scenes of life including kidnappings, shootings and a body in a coffin with the stark message "another bit of hope lost."
Revellers - Businessmen - Politicians - Pockets - Dollars
On another, revellers dressed as corrupt businessmen and politicians, their pockets bulging with dollars, handing out wads of fake cash.
More than six million people lined the streets of Rio for the annual celebrations, which pit the city’s 13 best samba schools against one another in ornate parades that can cost over £1.5m a piece.
