In London, an estimated 2,000 protesters have rallied outside a Conservative Party event to demand the resignation of British Prime Minister David Cameron, who is under fire after belatedly admitting that he did invest in an offshore trust in the Bahamas run by his late father.

Protesters bore placards declaring "Cameron must go!" while one hefted a pinata of a pink pig with a picture of Cameron on its head. Some vowed to camp indefinitely in Whitehall, the government district that includes Cameron's Downing Street residence.

One protester, a 25-year-old teacher from the northwestern city of Manchester, said he wanted to see Cameron crack down on tax loopholes for the rich — but doubted that he or any Conservative leader would.

Teacher Dominic Corfield says "I'm very angry with the way things are going."
