Riots Grip North London

Riots Grip North London

Riots rocked the north London area of Tottenham Saturday night as crowds pelted police officers with bricks and burned police cars, a double-decker bus, and buildings. Police arrested 42 people and 26 officers were injured. Some 50 fires were set. “There is no justification for the aggression the police and the public faced,” Downing Street said Sunday morning. The demonstration started peacefully when about 30 friends and relatives gathered outside the Tottenham police station to protest the death of Mark Duggan, 29, who was shot dead by officers Thursday during a traffic stop. The rally quickly swelled to include around 300 people. Commissioner Rachel Cerfontyne of the Independent Police Complaints Commission said there will be an investigation into Duggan’s death.
