UK police release video of royal car attack

LONDON (AP) - British police have released a video of a mob attacking a limo carrying Prince Charles and his wife during student protests last month.
The closed-circuit security camera video shows several people kicking and hitting the Rolls-Royce after the car was forced to slow down during the violent central London demonstrations. Thousands of students took to the capital's streets on Dec. 9 to protest university tuition fee hikes.
The future king and his wife Camilla, who were on their way to the theater, were photographed looking shocked by the incident. Critics call the attack one of the worst royal security breaches in recent years.
Police say thet hope the video released Tuesday can help them trace witnesses and people believed to have broken the law.
