LONDON — Police officers, some of them wounded, fled screaming after a pitbull attacked them during a house raid in east London — while locals stood and filmed the scene on their mobile phones, a court has heard.

One police officer broke down in tears as he told the jury at Inner London Crown Court how the dog attacked his colleague as they tried to subdue it and seemed not to notice them hitting it with their batons.
