Subway strikers, police clash in Sao Paulo, Brazil
Brazilian police and striking subway workers clashed in a central commuter station Monday while union leaders threatened to maintain the work stoppage through the World Cup's opening match in Sao Paulo this week.

 

Authorities are deeply worried about the strike because the subway is the main means of transportation for fans who will attend the tournament's initial game between Brazil and Croatia on Thursday. The stadium is about 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of central Sao Paulo, where most tourists stay. (AP)
