About 100 protestors, reportedly members of the English Defence League, clashed with police in London tonight after the grisly terror-related "cleaver" attack on the streets of Woolwich earlier today, the LBC site said.

A Sky News correspondent at the scene observed:

"As soon as the EDL got into the town centre... it became not only a lot harder for the police to try and contain anything, but also the aggression (increased) quite considerably. A few missiles have been thrown, glass bottles and the like. The police are trying to surround them and they've been charging them as well with batons."

A few hours after the Woolwich terror attack and leading up to the riot, LBC noted that two men were arrested following separate attacks on local mosques.

In the midst of the violence is the story of a mother and "cub scout leader" who reportedly confronted the cleaver-wielding terrorists after their attack earlier today, telling them to hand over their weapons and that "It's only you versus many people. You are going to lose."

The Telegraph said that Ingrid Loyau-Kennett "engaged the terrorists in conversation and kept her nerve as one of them told her: 'We want to start a war in London tonight.'"

Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall, was purportedly one of the first on the scene after two alleged "Islamic extremists butchered a soldier in Woolwich, south east London."

“I asked him if he did it and he said yes and I said why?" Loyau-Kennett recalled. "And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British soldier and I said really and he said 'I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan they have nothing to do there.”
