LOCAL BRAZILIANS ARMED WITH BOWS, ARROWS AND CHARMS CLASH WITH POLICE OVER BRAZIL'S HOSTING OF WORLD CUP (PHOTOS)




Brazilians are not happy with their government for hosting the World Cup, the tournament  kicks off in 2 weeks time. There have been a number of protests and critism since the begining of the year about the huge amount being spent on the hosting.
Indigenous people armed with bows, arrows & charms clashed with police in Brazil's capital, Brasilia, outside the Mane Garrincha National Stadium , two weeks before the World Cup begins. They are protesting the hosting of the world cup by Brazil because they feel it will cost too much for a developing nation. They say the billions spent could be used to better the lives of the poor.

 They were further infuriated after learning that the Brasilia's stadium will cost 1.9 billion reais (£500million),triple the amount earlier earmarked .


The protests forced the government to cancel the exhibition of the World Cup trophy.
Some fired arrows at the mounted police who retaliated with tear gas but did not use guns..
