Belo Horizonte, Brazil • Authorities have confirmed the death of a protester the day after thousands took to the streets and clashed with police as Brazil played Uruguay in the Confederations Cup semifinals.

The protester was identified as 21-year-old Douglas Henrique Oliveira. Officials said he died of head injuries after falling from an overpass during demonstrations near Mineirao Stadium on Wednesday.

Store windows were destroyed, houses were vandalized, a truck was burned and several cars at a dealership showroom were set on fire.

Several hundred masked protesters fought with riot police as they tried to get closer to the stadium, angered with the government and the high cost of hosting the World Cup in Brazil.
