RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL -- A month before Rio welcomes thousands of visitors, and athletes from all over for the 2016 Olympic Games, the city's mayor is slamming state officials over what he calls a "terrible" security situation.
"As you know, this is not a city responsibility in Brazil, it's a state-level responsibility. I think they do a terrible job on security. They do a terrible job before the games and after the games," said Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes.
As bad as that sounds - he's confident the games will be safe. "Fortunately, they're not going to be the ones responsible for security during the games," said Paes.
That's right - the city is responsible for security during the games. Safety, however, isn't the only thing tourists need to worry about while visiting. Zika is still a very real concern. However, things are getting better.
"You've got more cases of Zika in Florida than what we have now in Rio," he said.
A bit of good news for the Olympics that have - so far - been surrounded by bad news.
