San Antonio Do Ica, Brazil -
BRAZILIAN SOLDIER JOKES WITH SCHOOL CHILDREN.
A Brazilian Army soldier jokes with school children during a visit to a
school in the remote town of San Antonio do Ica, deep in the Amazon
jungle near the border with Colombia, June 27, 2003. Long used as a
transit route for Colombian narcotraffickers, Brazil is now a major
drug market in itself, causing the government to consider adding troops
to the region and lawmakers to debate giving the armed forces a
permanent role in fighting the drug trade. Picture taken June 27, 2003.
