Protestors Overshadow Olympic Celebrations in UK

What was supposed to be a celebration of the olympic torch passing through London quickly turns into an ugly protest of China.

One protester tried to put out the torch with a fire extinguisher.  Others threw themselves at the torch.  Then another tried to snatch it away.

London police say at one point, 100 people had surrounded the torch bearer.

They are protesting China's human rights record and its recent action in Tibet.

London police say at least 35 people were arrested for a range of public offenses.
