Judge: Process prisoners in stadium
RIO DE JANEIRO -- A World Cup stadium being built in the isolated Brazilian state of Amazonas may not become a white elephant after all.
At least one judge in the area has come up with a post-World Cup use: a prisoner processing center.
Brazil is readying 12 stadiums for next year's World Cup, and several -- including the new stadium in Manaus -- will be little used after the tournament.
FIFA and Brazilian officials were the subject of widespread protests three months ago during the Confederations Cup, a warm-up for the World Cup.
Millions took to the streets to protest spending billions on sports events in a country with poor public services, high taxes and stark social inequality.
