SAO PAULO (AP) - FIFA and Brazil World Cup organizers are trying to show nothing is affecting their partnership in preparing the country to host the event in 2014.

FIFA is wrapping up an inspection tour of the host cities and will oversee the draw on Saturday for next year's Confederations Cup.

On Wednesday there's a board meeting of the local committee.

The activities come at a tumultuous time. Brazil is without a coach amid internal disputes at the federation. A local member of FIFA's executive committee was targeted in a police operation and some World Cup projects have been removed from the list of infrastructure work planned by the government.
