MOSCOW, June 16: While fans from around the world are singing and celebrating the World Cup on Moscow�s streets, they can�t go to the most famous place in the Russian capital - Red Square. Barriers staffed by police officers have blocked off the square for several days, with authorities citing the need to build and dismantle stages for a national holiday and a World Cup-themed opera performance last Tuesday and Wednesday. Mexico supporter Cesar Reyes, peering past the barriers, says �it�s a real shame it�s closed because it�s one of the best places to visit when you�re in Moscow. It�s a real shame that people will miss it because it�s closed for special event and there�s no opportunity to appreciate this building.� � AP
