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.
