London burned for the third night in a row Monday, as rioters and looters continued to roam the city. A 26-year-old man was the first fatality of the riots, found shot in his car. The 6,000 police officers working Monday night and Tuesday morning used armored vehicles called Jankels to push back a crowd of 150 looters in Lavender Hill. Elsewhere in London, residents jumped from burning buildings, while kitchen workers at the Michelin-starred Ledbury restaurant in Notting Hill fought off looters with rolling pins and fry baskets. British Home Secretary Theresa May has ruled out using water cannons. Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron pledged 16,000 police officers by Tuesday night to fight "criminality"; so far, 400 people have been arrested. There is some good news: Londoners are using Twitter to coordinate a cleanup.
