Demonstrators angry with the billions being spent on Brazil's hosting the World Cup burst into the hall where the tournament trophy was on display yesterday.

The trophy is on a tour around the host country ahead of football's main event, set to open June 12th and run through July 13th.

Protesters -- who oppose the money being spent on organising the Cup, as well as recent public transport increases -- hurled rocks and chunks of wood at the historic building in Belem, the Para state capital, where the trophy was on display.
