SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian police used tear gas, rubber bullets and stun grenades to disperse striking workers inside a subway station, adding to fears that labor unrest could disrupt the World Cup that opens there in five days.

Operators of the subway and overland trains were in the second day of a strike for higher wages, with no indication that it would end soon. Most soccer fans heading to Thursday’s opening Cup match in Sao Paulo will need to use the subway.
