Troops clashed with protesters in the streets of São Paulo this morning, just hours before the opening match of the World Cup.
At least five people were injured during the clash, according to Sao Paulo police. The BBC reports at least one protester was arrested.
The demonstrators were protesting the millions of dollars that Brazil has spent on the World Cup, arguing the money should have been spent on improving public services.
Video footage from the BBC appears to show riot police using teargas against protesters, arresting one person.
