LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned clashes between anti-racist protesters, far-right demonstrators and police on Saturday, saying rallies had been subverted by violence.

“Racist thuggery has no place on our streets. Anyone attacking the police will be met with full force of the law,” he tweeted.
