Police arrested 160 people during a weekend of riots and looting that erupted in Tottenham, a London neighborhood just five miles from the site of next year's Olympic Games. The violence broke out in the north London suburb on Saturday night as a result of community anger over the fatal police shooting of 29-year-old Mark Duggan, who was gunned down over disputed circumstances on Thursday. After a peaceful protest of his death, violence broke out when nearly 300 and 500 people gathered around Tottenham's police station late Saturday. Some protesters filled bottles with gasoline to throw at police lines while others confronted officers with makeshift weapons, including baseball bats and bars.
