LONDON, theAFP) (AFP) – Thousands of people demonstrated on the streets of London ahead of the G20 summit here in angry protests that descended into violent battles with police and saw one man collapse and die.

After a day of protests Wednesday to mark the summit of world leaders in the capital, a man died in hospital after falling unconscious inside a police cordon near the Bank of England.

Police and the London Ambulance Service said they were alerted by a member of the public and tried to resuscitate the man -- despite at one point being pelted by bottles from protesters -- but he was declared dead in hospital.

In the netherlands they stated on the news that the protestor collapsed in the crowd. Also they report that the police was attacked while trying to lend aid to the vicitm.

The language is a bit stronger and more negative towards the protestors then the AFP report. The MSM here also reports that the Royal Bank of Scotland was attacked and that some of the attackers made it to within the building.
