"Police deployed extra officers on London's streets and monitored social network sites Sunday to prevent a repeat of the rioting, looting and multiple fires in a deprived area amid community anger over a fatal police shooting. A peaceful protest against the killing of the 29-year-old man in north London's Tottenham area degenerated into a Saturday night rampage, with rioters torching a double-decker bus, destroying patrol cars and trashing a shopping mall in the nearby Wood Green district."
