SAO PAULO - A stadium scheduled for the World Cup opener in Brazil has partially collapsed, killing three people.

A crane collapsed, causing a huge metal structure to buckle atop the stadium, destroying part of the stands and a LED panel outside the venue.

The collapse may mean Itaquero Stadium in Brazil may not be completed in time for a December deadline to have all 12 World Cup venues ready.
