Twin Brazilian sisters reportedly killed in livestreamed execution

Twin sisters in Brazil have reportedly been fatally shot in the back of their heads in a horrific gang-related double execution that was livestreamed on Instagram.

The 18-year-olds — both mothers named locally as Amália and Amanda Alves — were forced to kneel before being killed because they knew too much about a drug deal, the Sun reported, citing local media.

The shocking footage of the murders behind a complex in Pacajus in the northeast state of Ceara has been viewed thousands of times, according to Brazilian news outlets.
