HKFP Lens Law & Crime Politics & Protest

HKFP Lens: Tear gas, rubber bullets – frontline photos from Hong Kong’s protest clashes on Sunday

Demonstrators converged on Sai Wan’s China Liaison Office in Hong Kong on Sunday night, following an otherwise peaceful anti-extradition law protest. They threw eggs and ink-filled balloons, obscured CCTV cameras with spray paint and covered parts of the building’s exterior with anti-government graffiti. One activist reiterated the movement’s demands, before riot police arrived on the scene. Activists then fled eastwards through Sheung Wan towards Central, as police deployed multiple volleys of tear gas, rubber bullet and bean bag rounds. Read the full story.
