Protestors hack Brazil World Cup 2014 website
Sydney: Protestors have reportedly hacked the official website for the Brazil Football World Cup 2014 and replaced the site with a video of a violent police response to a peaceful protest.
The FIFA website was replaced with an embedded YouTube video, showing protesters marching, before riot police release tear gas and fire on the protesters with rubber bullets.
Protestors are seen shouting `sem violencia` throughout the video, which translates into `no violence` in English.
However, the FIFA site has now been restored.
The protest in the video is apparently a part of the recent demonstrations across the country, sparked earlier this month by a hike in public transport fares, as well as government spending on the World Cup and the Olympics.
