Hong Kong protests: Tear gas fired at unauthorised demonstrators – BBC News



Thousands of protesters in Hong Kong have taken to the streets, blocking major roads and defying a police ban.

The protesters wore black and held umbrellas, chanting anti-police slogans while marching through the territory’s business district.

Police had given permission for a rally in Chater Garden, but warned that protests outside the park were illegal.

On Saturday, police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at another pro-democracy protest in Yuen Long, in the north.

Hong Kong has seen seven consecutive weeks of anti-government and pro-democracy protests.

It is ranked as one of the safest cities in the world – but recent protests have been followed by violent clashes between demonstrators, police, and masked men wielding sticks.
