LONDON - Crowds attacked riot police and set two squad cars alight in north London on Saturday following a protest at the fatal shooting of a man by armed officers earlier in the week.

Disorder spread after up to 200 people gathered near Tottenham police station during the evening.

The Metropolitan force said bottles were thrown at officers on a foot patrol and one of the vehicles was pushed into the middle of the main road before it was set on fire.

Riot police sent to the scene came under attack from a crowd throwing bottles and missiles, said the force.
