World Cup protester pepper sprayed at point blank

Video from Sao Paulo today shows an anti-World Cup protester being sprayed in the eyes by riot police at point blank range.

A few dozen protesters clashed with police about 13 kilometres from the Arena Corinthians stadium which will host the Brazil-Croatia opener at 9pm.

One journalist was also injured in the melee.

Many Brazilians are angry over the $11.3 billion (£6.7 billion) spent on hosting the World Cup.
