Heavily armed men stormed a Sao Paulo bus depot Tuesday, setting some three dozen buses on fire in attack police believed was linked to organized crime.
At least six gunmen stormed the depot of the private bus company, completely destroying 23 vehicles and badly damaging 11 others in the town of Osasco, some 25 kilometers (16 miles) outside Sao Paulo.
"They were all heavily armed. They took some employees hostage," said Miguel De Albuquerque, manager of the company, speaking to the Globo G1 news site.
