At least six people were arrested in London on Tuesday in connection with plans for anti-capitalist demonstrations before next week’s Group of Eight summit, police in Britain said.
Among them are people accused of having weapons with intent to cause violent disorder. The arrests come after police in riot gear raided a building in central London.
Britain is hosting the G8 world leaders at a summit next week in Northern Ireland. A “Carnival Against Capitalism” has been planned by demonstrators ahead of the summit.
