Britain burning, first casualty over London riots 2011

London, Aug 9: Becoming the first casualty of riots that have entangled Britain, a 26-year-old man died in South London on Tuesday, Aug 9. The man was reportedly shot in a car in Croydon when the capital city of Briatin was witnessing the aftermath of the riots.

Since Sunday, Aug 7, the protest all over the city has been scattered like fire. Hundreds of police and protesters were bruised over the riots.

Earlier on Tuesday, police authorities were quoted by Telegraph as saying, “The BlackBerry phone, one of the first devices to offer mobile email, was once the preserve of business leaders and political aides but has become increasingly popular with members of urban gangs and teenagers.”

The violence kicked off when police shot down 29-year-old Mark Duggan on Saturday in Tottenham following a peaceful protest. The protest was reportedly co-ordinated on social site Facebook. Later this protest grew wild and spread to rest of the parts.

Micro-blogging site Twitter and the video sharing website YouTube were flooded with tweets and videos of riots. Protesters and spectators were recording the live videos of protest and instantly posting on YouTube and Twitter.

The British PM David Cameron stated, “This (London riot) is criminality pure and simple and it has to be confronted and defeated.”

Thousands of police have been lied for patrolling the roads of the riot hit city. 450 people have been arrested over the connection with the row.
