    Riots in London have continued for a third night and they spread to new areas of the city and to other cities in what is seen as Britain's worst violence in decades. The rioting began on Saturday after hundreds of people held a protest over the killing of 29-year-old Mark Duggan by police in Tottenham, north London.
