Hong Kong police clash with protesters in fresh demos


The police in Hong Kong fired tear gas at thousands of demonstrators in fresh protests against the political class in Beijing.

Hong Kong’s central business district turned chaotic after the police dispersed the protesters after they started throwing paint bombs and painting graffitti on China’s representative office in Hong Kong.
