SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian labor officials have allowed work to resume in part of the World Cup stadium where a worker died while installing the stadium's temporary seats.

Construction had been partially stopped at the Itaquerao stadium, which is hosting the World Cup opener in June, because of safety concerns following the death of the worker on March 29.

Officials from the Labor Ministry inspected the venue Monday and said most of the necessary safety measures had been implemented where the seats were being installed. Not all the work could resume, however, because construction workers had yet to install protective nets in part of the site.

Brazilian World Cup organizers and FIFA said the delay should not keep the stadium from being finished in time for the Brazil-Croatia opener on June 12.
