Anger boils over at Brazil protests

The opening day of the World Cup in Brazil has been marred by scuffles between police and protesters, angry at the cost of hosting the tournament.

Officers used tear gas on crowds in Sao Paulo hours before Brazil's team beat Croatia 3-1 in the opening match and several people were also injured after scuffles broke out in Rio de Janeiro.

Demonstrators are angry at the money spent on the World Cup, instead of public services.
