Masked protesters clashed with riot police on east London’s Kingsland Road on Friday, July 28, with some hurling bottles and eggs, as tensions came to a head following the death of 20-year-old Rashan Charles while in police custody on Saturday. Charles reportedly died after he was chased into a shop by police and restrained on the floor, during which he apparently swallowed an object. Dozens of protesters gathered outside the shop on Friday afternoon, setting up barricades across the street. Credit: Twitter/Sectrum SINO via Storyful
