Brazil: Dozens protest FIFA World Cup in capital

Scores of protesters gathered in front of the Brasilia Shopping Mall in the Brazilian capital on Saturday to demonstrate against the upcoming 2014 football World Cup.

With less than five months to go until the official June 12 kick-off, protesters are expressing discontent with the amount of money being spent on the cup infrastructure rather than on other areas, such as health and education.

Similar protests took place across the country on Saturday, including in Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro.
