A CONSTRUCTION worker fell to his death Saturday from the roof of a World Cup stadium being built in the jungle city of Manaus, marking the latest setback to hit Brazil before it hosts football's showcase event next year.

It was the second death at the Arena Amazonia in less than a year, and the third fatality in a World Cup stadium in less than a month.
