Anger among young Asian men after the killing of three men: 21 year old Haroon Jahan, and brothers Shazad Ali (30) and Abdul Musavir (31) who were killed on Tuesday evening in a hit and run incident by suspected looters as they guarded a petrol station forecourt with many other people on Dudley Road in the Winson Green area of Birmingham, which was hit by a surge of rioting and looting. The violence started in London on Saturday evening after a peaceful protest in response to the shooting by police of Mark Duggan during an attempted arrest escalated into a riot, but has now spread to other areas in the country.
