Violent clashes between Police and protestors in Hong Kong


SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Police armed with batons and pepper spray pushed back activists as they tried to surround administrative offices in the Chinese-controlled city. According to reports from various news agencies, more than 40 people were arrested and several police and protesters were injured.

The pro-democracy movement represents one of the biggest threats for China’s Communist Party leadership since Beijing’s 1989 crackdown. Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said police had been very tolerant but would now take “resolute action.” “Some people have mistaken the police’s tolerance for weakness,” he told reporters.
