ZURICH - About 150 protesters gathered outside FIFA's headquarters in Zurich on Saturday with banners criticizing the ruling body's management of the World Cup in Brazil, causing minor damage to the building.



FIFA's reputation has been tarnished by allegations of corruption and its running of the tournament which started on Thursday has also been criticized.



"Around 150 people have taken part in the unauthorized demonstration," Michael Wirz, spokesman for the Zurich police, told Reuters.



"The event was peaceful overall with nobody injured, but there was some minor damage to the building," he said.
