Hundreds of protesters in Brazil have clashed with riot police near Rio de Janeiro's Maracana football stadium.

Police fired tear gas minutes before the kick-off of a Confederations Cup tie between Italy and Mexico.

Protesters were complaining about the high cost of the tournament and the 2014 World Cup, in a country still lacking in public services.
