Thousands of people clashed briefly with Mount Police on Saturday in protest of the police brutality following the assassination of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service said in a statement, “I am deeply saddened and disappointed that a minority of protesters in central London last evening turned violent towards officers. As a result, 14 officers were injured.
