8 agosto 2011: Londra insorge

Immagini da Londra:

Hundreds of angry protesters gathered near Tottenham police station in north London on Saturday evening demanding justice for the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old man during an apparent exchange of gunfire with police officers on Thursday. As riot police were brought into the area, crowds torched two patrol cars, a bus and a shop outside the police station on the High Road in Tottenham, smashing up shop windows.

In 1985, similar protests and subsequent riots happened in Tottenham after a woman died during a police search of her home.
