1. U.K. Aftermath

    Teen Accused of BlackBerry Incitement

    LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 08: A rioter throws a rock at riot police in Clarence Road in Hackney on August 8, 2011 in London, England. Pockets of rioting and looting continues to take place in various boroughs of London this evening, as well as in Birmingham, prompted by the initial rioting in Tottenham and then in Brixton on Sunday night. It has been announced that the Prime Minister David Cameron and his family are due to return home from their summer holiday in Tuscany, Italy to respond to the rioting. Disturbances broke out late on Saturday night in Tottenham and the surrounding area after the killing of Mark Duggan, 29 and a father-of-four, by armed police in an attempted arrest on August 4.

    A U.K. teen has been accused of using a BlackBerry to incite violence during the London riots. The 18-year-old allegedly sent a BlackBerry message on Monday that encouraged friends to repeat the violence and looting that had been spreading across the country. This is the first case in which police have cited the messaging service, but one politician called for BlackBerry Messenger to be shut off during the disturbances, while Tory M.P. Louise Mensch said that Twitter should be shut down as well. “Shut them off for an hour or two, then restore,” Mensch said. “World won’t implode.”
