Protesters clash with police at Bank of England
Chanting G-20 protesters clashed with riot police in London on Wednesday, breaking through police cordons to vandalize the Bank of England and smashing windows at the Royal Bank of Scotland. One death was reported. More than 30 people were arrested after some 4,000 anarchists, anti-capitalists, environmentalists and others clogged London's financial district for what demonstrators had branded "Financial Fool's Day." An effigy of a banker was set ablaze, drawing cheers from crowds who set up tents around the financial district. Police said a member of the public reported that a man had collapsed near one of the protest camps in the city's financial district. When officers arrived they tried to resuscitate him but he was pronounced dead at the hospital. It was unclear if the man was a protester, and his cause of death was under investigation.
