Protest against the death of George Floyd, in London

LONDON (Reuters) - Brief scuffles broke out between police and protesters close to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Downing Street office on Wednesday during a march against racism prompted by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a Reuters photographer said.

Tens of thousands of people were taking part in the demonstration, which has so far been peaceful.
