(Newser) – Ian Tomlinson, who died during last week’s G20 protests in London, was clubbed and pushed to the ground by police minutes before he suffered a fatal heart attack, the Guardian reports. The paper has obtained video, which shows Tomlinson walking away from riot cops with dogs before he was attacked from behind. Tomlinson, who was on his way home from work, was earlier battered by police batons, witnesses say.
