British police arrested 20 people Friday outside the U.S. Embassy in London on suspicion of belonging to a banned group.
Scotland Yard said a total of 22 people were arrested during a protest over the American use of drones in Pakistan organized by a group calling itself "United Ummah."
Police said 20 people were arrested on suspicion of being members of a group banned by the Home Office. It would not say what group it believed the suspects belong to and the U.S. Embassy declined to comment.
