World cup security guards walk out

Stewards strike to protest wages at Cape Town match

Around 1,000 police officers guarded the Italy vs. Paraguay game in Capetown at the FIFA World Cup on Monday following a pay strike by security stewards. The stewards, who have received 190 ran (US $25), claim that they were told they would be paid more for their work. World Cup chief Danny Jordaan has condemned the protests, saying it’s “unacceptable” for the stewards to disrupt the games. Today, security is being handled by police and non-striking stewards.
