Katy Perry London, Aug 13 (IANS) Comedian Russell Brand believes the street violence in Britain is sad and frightening.

“(The) riots are sad and frightening and if I have, by virtue of my temporary displacement, forgone the right to speak about the behaviour of my countrymen, then this is gonna be irksome,” quoted him as saying.

“I feel proud to be English, proud to be a Londoner, never more so than since being in exile, and I naturally begin to wonder what would make young people destroy their communities,” he added.

The 36-year-old, originally from Britain, now lives in Los Angeles with his wife Katy Perry.
