World cup security stewards walk out

Stewards are on strike to protest wages

1,000 police officers were at the Italy and Paraguay game yesterday following a riot in Durban, South Africa, caused by security stewards who were protesting over pay at FIFA World Cup. 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.
