LONDON, April 2 (RIA Novosti) - British police
arrested 81 protestors on Thursday during the G20 summit in
London, one of whom was seriously injured during one of the
riots, a security officer told RIA Novosti.
On Wednesday, some 30 protestors were arrested and one
person died during the protests in the British capital where
the heads of 20 industrial and major developing countries
gathered to discuss the global economic crisis. During one of
the riots, the Royal Bank of Scotland came under attack and its
windows were broken.
Near the ExCel Center, where the summit was held, there
are no protests as the area around the center has been
sectioned off by a large number of police, including mounted
police. Private security companies have also been involved in
keeping peace in the area.
