Scuffles broke out in downtown London on Saturday as tensions flared between English Defense League (EDL) demonstrators and counter-protesters from the United Against Fascism and United Against Extremism groups. A heavy police presence was seen in the area and several people were detained. The demonstrations come in the wake of deadly terrorist attacks on Westminster and London Bridges and, more recently, outside a mosque in Finsbury Park in the north of the capital.
