The London riot, now in its third day, is going strong as violent rioters go against police and loot the city. Birmingham and Liverpool are reporting riots breaking out as well.
Windows have been smashed, polices vans attacked, and cars set on fire in Hackney. Trains have stopped providing service at Hackney Central Station, whie buses are not operating in Lewisham or Peckham.
35 policemen have been hurt so far, including three who were run over by a car while trying to make arrests.
British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg calls the violence "needless," "opportunistic" and "completely unacceptable."
Britain's Home Secretary Theresa May has warned the rioters, "Let me be absolutely clear, those responsible for this violence and looting, will be made to face the consequences of their actions."
So far, at least 215 arrests were made and 27 people have been charged, according to May, but "as the police take statement from witnesses, as they look at CCTV evidence, then more arrests will be made." About half of the people arrested are under the age of 21.
35 policemen have been hurt so far, including three who were run over by a car.
The unrest in London was ignited by a shooting, insensitive policing, and people looking for opportunistic looting, but Londoners are saying unemployment and reduced public services are the reason.
The violence is the worst that London has seen in years.
