G8 protesters due in court after day of violence

Up to 100 G8 protesters will today appear in court following violent clashes with police in the centre of Edinburgh.
Riot police were yesterday bombarded with paving stones, bricks and park benches by protesters who had descended on the city intent on causing disruption on the eve of the summit at Gleneagles.

Around 100 people were arrested including what police called 'key' anarchist suspects who had travelled to Scotland from across Europe.
