Just days before the 2014 World Cup draw, at least three people have been killed after part of the Corinthians Arena collapsed.
There has been controversy over the construction for the stadiums ahead of next summer’s tournament and this is set to escalate after this tragedy.
At least three people have died at the scene, but the head of the fire department warned there could be more casualties.
A crane collapsed on to a part of the stadium which is still under construction at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo.
This is the venue that was due to host the World Cup opening ceremony next summer.
The World Cup draw will be held on December 6 in Bahia.
