Brazil’s Arena Fonte Nova stadium suffers roof collapse

A Brazilian stadium which is due to host Confederations Cup matches in June has suffered a partial collapse of its roof, after an apparent build-up of rainwater.

Workers at the Arena Fonte Nova stadium in Salvador had to bail out water from another section to try to prevent it from collapsing. There were no initial reports of any injuries.

The incident happened as President Dilma Rousseff praised Brazil’s preparations for the Confederations Cup 2014.
