Anger in Brazil over World Cup spending

Thousands of protesters fought with riot police in Sao Paulo during marches against this summer's World Cup.

    There is outrage that Brazil is spending more than $20bn for this summer's World Cup tournament and there have been protests in seven cities across the country, the biggest one in Sao Paulo.

    Many of the protests have been led by youths, who say spending $4bn to build 12 new stadiums for the football event is simply too much.
