Police arrest 122 after G20 violence | UK | Reuters

LONDON (Reuters) - Police have arrested 122 people and detained scores more following violent clashes timed to coincide with the G20 economic summit in London, they said on Thursday.

Around 85 people were arrested on Wednesday after repeatedly clashing with police in the narrow streets of London's financial quarter on what protesters designated "Financial Fools Day."

Police are also examining how one man died in the clashes.

By mid-afternoon on Thursday, after two police raids on squats and two smaller demonstrations around the Stock Exchange and the Bank of England, the total number of arrests reached 122, police said.
