Officials said this would never happen.But British anger has bubbled over, and London has been in flames for days. It all began after a murky, violent exchange between police and a young black man named Mark Duggan in Tottenham.

Now Duggan is dead, and the riots have spread through London’s neighborhoods and out of the city to Liverpool, Bristol and Birmingham.
