Two police cars, a bus and several shops were attacked and set ablaze in north London on Saturday night as violence and looting erupted following a protest demanding "justice" over a fatal police shooting.
Officers on horseback and others in riot gear clashed with hundreds of rioters armed with makeshift missiles in the centre of Tottenham after Mark Duggan, 29, a father of four, was killed on Thursday. The police shot him and had lied about what happened. The police had said the victim pulled a gun but people say he wouldn't have done that with armed police. “They shot him so badly that his mother could not recognize him," said a protestor.
