Pro-Gaza protesters riot in London.
The Mail Online reported:
Violent clashes occurred between police and around 20,000 protesters outside the Israeli Embassy in London – with an estimated 100,000 protesters airing their views around the city.
Windows were smashed and policemen were injured – with one officer knocked unconscious in the running battles and two requiring treatment for facial injuries.
The protesters – mainly young men – knocked down barriers threw missiles including eggs, red paint, sticks and shoes as 300 officers in full riot gear tried to maintain the peace.
There were reports that some protesters had tried to set fire to police vans.
The violence, which broke out in front of the Israeli Embassy, appeared to be led by a hard-core of masked and hooded youths.
A national demonstration against Israel’s attack marched from Speakers’ Corner at Hyde Park today to the Israeli embassy in High Street Kensington.
Barriers are broken down as the protest turns ugly, with at least one police officer hospitalised by the riots. (Daily Mail)
