Police used tear gas to disperse protesters in Hong Kong

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Police in Hong Kong used tear gas to disperse groups of radical demonstrators at the government complex, as well as in several areas in the mainland. This is broadcast live by local television.

On Sunday, tens of thousands of youth protesters again took to the streets. The faces of many of them are still masked, despite the ban imposed on Friday by local administration head Carrie Lam. Protesters are blocking traffic, erecting barricades, scattering rubbish, committing acts of vandalism, and swearing at China, local authorities and the police using spray cans.

Due to fears of riots in the city , many shops, restaurants, shopping centers and half of the metro stations are closed . The subway administration on Sunday morning resumed its work in a limited mode: trains will run until 21:00 (16:00 Moscow time). On Saturday, the subway remained closed all day due to repairs after acts of vandalism.

Street protests are expected to resume on Monday.
