UK's arrested youth look for their voice

Al Jazeera talks to some of the youths affected by the riots.

    Hundreds of people in London have been charged with robbery, arson and violent disorder, but some of those arrested say they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    While some analysts point to the economic situation as a contributing factor, police say the rioters and looters come from all social backgrounds.

    Others allege it is the way young people are perceived by the authorities that have left them so angry.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from London.
