The IndependentWoolwich attacks: BNP and anti-fascists in street clashes. ‘At least 58 people were arrested in London yesterday after anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with British National Party members outside the Houses of Parliament. The far-right group’s march was one of around 60 planned across the country yesterday to mark the death of Drummer Lee Rigby, murdered in Woolwich last month.’

BBC NewsTerror watch lists: Can you keep tabs on every suspect? ‘After the Boston Marathon bombing and the killing of a British soldier on the streets of Woolwich in London, it emerged that suspects were known to the security services – prompting concern from critics. But how feasible is it for the spies to monitor everyone on their watch list?’

Comment: Huffington Post: Islamic hate crime won’t last: The UK is a tolerant place. ‘Tell Mama – the hotline to report anti-Muslim hate crime has documented a large increase in reports in the week since Woolwich: from around four-five a day to more like 40. I would rather it were none, of course, but it should not cause for panic: the UK is in fact a remarkably tolerant country.’
