BRIDES KISS THEIR INMATE HUSBANDS DURING MASSIVE WEDDING AT A PRISON IN BRAZIL.
Male inmates at the Carandiru Prison kiss their new brides during Brazil's first-ever mass prison wedding, in Sao Paulo June 14. Officials and evangelical pastors fashioned Carandiru's cell block 6 into a temporary church for the wedding of 120 inmates. The Detention House - Carandiru's formal name - houses 7,400 inmates, and is best known for a 1992 police massacre that left 111 inmates dead. Brides and wedding guests had to show up two hours ahead of time for a required body church, prior to exchanging their formal vows inside the cell block. The only thing that gave away the well-groomed criminals as inmates were their beige trousers, part of their prison uniform. Carandiru is Latin America's largest prison.
