British Prime Minister David Cameron has declared “an all-out war” against protesters who have been holding anti-government rallies in the United Kingdom.

On Monday, Cameron described the unrest in the UK as a "wake-up call" for the country and called for "an all-out war" against what he referred to as “gangs.”

Cameron also unveiled new tough measures to tackle social problems -- including tougher conditions on jobless benefits claims.

Earlier, the British premier recruited former New York police commissioner Bill Bratton as his consultant regarding the ongoing unrest in Britain.

The move sparked anger among British police who described it as “a slap in the face.”

The unrest in Britain began on August 6 in the north London suburb of Tottenham, after a few hundred people gathered outside a police station to protest against the fatal shooting and killing of a black man, Mark Duggan, by the police.

Thereafter, violent protests erupted in major cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, and Bristol, contributing to Britain's worst unrest since the 1980s.

Reports say that more than 3,000 people have been arrested in the brutal crackdown of UK police on protesters across the United Kingdom.
