Reporter Hit by Tear Gas Container as Brazilian Cops Spar With Protestors

Jun 12, 2014

Brazilian police fired tear gas canisters at a group of protestors demonstrating against the World Cup on Thursday. At least one arrest was made, according to CNN reporter Shasta Darlington, who was struck with a tear gas canister on live air during the fracas.

The protestors intended to make their way to Corinthians Stadium some seven miles away.

Similar protests have cropped up in recent weeks as many Brazilians are enraged by the World Cup's $11 billion price tag. Some argue those funds would be better spent on local needs like housing, hospitals and schools.
