Woolwich street attack

SO. How did the UKIP-supporting English Defence League react to the apparently religion-motivated barbaric murder of a British soldier in Woolwich, south London?

Well, Tommy Robinson and EDL supporters gathered outside The Queens Arms pub in Woolwich.

Channel 4 reports:

Running battles erupted in the streets with youths and EDL activists in balaclavas throwing rocks at riot police. Some wore paramilitary dress. (see photo above).

Sky News correspondent Alistair Bunkall:

“As soon as the EDL got into the town centre … it became not only a lot harder for the police to try and contain anything, but also the aggression (increased) quite considerably. A few missiles have been thrown, glass bottles and the like. The police are trying to surround them and they’ve been charging them as well with batons.”

ITV reports:

Around 40 members of the far-right organisation the English Defence League have run towards police in Woolwich following today’s attack in the area.
