Brasilia, Brazil: President Dilma Rousseff says Brazil's armed forces could be called on to contain possible violent protests during the upcoming World Cup.

   
Rousseff told reporters on Wednesday that federal law enforcement officers will be used to beef up local police forces in the 12 cities where World Cup games will be played. She said the government is investing the equivalent of $791 million to this end.
   
"And if necessary we will also mobilize the armed forces," she added.
   
"We will guarantee the security of fans, tourists, teams and the chiefs-of-state that will visit us. I am certain we will host the cup of cups," Rousseff said.
