more from NBC, MSNBC on London riots

NBC, msnbc.com and news services report, August 7, 2011:

The BBC reported that its TV news crew and satellite truck came under attack from youths. Sky News also said it was forced to temporarily withdraw camera crews from the area as the situation became increasingly volatile early Sunday.

A spokesman for British Prime Minister David Cameron branded the rioting as “utterly unacceptable.”

Widespread looting was also reported Sunday morning in the nearby Wood Green district of north London.
