Brazilian police fire tear gas at World Cup protesters

World Cup protestors clash with police

SAO PAOLO, Brazil — Brazilian police fired tear gas Thursday to hold back a small group of people who were trying to work their way through Sao Paulo to Corinthians Stadium to protest the World Cup.

At least one person was arrested, CNN’s Shasta Darlington reported from the scene, 11 kilometers (7 miles) from the stadium.

Many people in Brazil are furious at the government for spending $11 billion on the World Cup instead of low-income housing, hospitals, and schools.
