    Three killed in collapse at Sao Paulo stadium that will host 2014 World Cup opener

    SAO PAULO, Brazil — Part of the stadium that will host the 2014 World Cup opener in Brazil collapsed on Wednesday, causing significant damage and killing three people, authorities said.

    The accident could delay the delivery of the stadium in Sao Paulo by FIFA’s December deadline to have all 12 venues ready. Work was immediately halted at the Itaquerao Stadium, which was practically completed before the collapse.

    I hope the accident wasn't a result of pressure on the workers to have something completed within a deadline but I suspect it was.
