Britain's parliament is recalled from its summer recess to deal with riots

Britain's parliament has been recalled from its summer holidays for a special debate on the riots that have swept London and other major cities, Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday.

"My office this morning has spoken to the Speaker of the House of Commons, and he has agreed that parliament will be recalled for a day on Thursday so I can make a statement to parliament and we can hold a debate, and we are all able to stand together in condemnation of these crimes and also to stand together in determination to rebuild these communities," Cameron told reporters.
