Ecuador: Armed men storm television studio live on air; Gangsters go on rampage | Oneindia News

Ecuador is in the grip of a mounting crisis as President Daniel Noboa orders military operations against powerful criminal groups following a series of violent incidents.

The country, once known for its tranquillity, has been plunged into chaos after a prison escape by one of its most notorious criminal bosses, Jose Adolfo Macias, alias ‘Fito’.

The situation escalated further when hooded gunmen stormed a television studio in the port city of Guayaquil.

The attackers, armed with rifles and grenades, caused chaos and fear as they entered the TC television studio.

A distressing plea for mercy was heard amid gunshots, capturing the terror of the situation.

President Noboa swiftly responded, declaring a state of ‘internal armed conflict’ and ordering the military to neutralise these criminal groups.
