Protests in Hong Kong intensify

  • Pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong have intensified their protests after clashes between students and police and dozens of arrests.

    After protesters stormed the government headquarters, three prominent activists were detained. Police officers forcibly removed dozens of protesters from the complex.

    A student leader said the movement to occupy public spaces had begun on Sunday morning, with activists describing it as a non-violent campaign. 

    The protests were triggered after Beijing announced that it would choose the candidates for the crucial polls for Hong Kong’s chief executive’s post in 2017.
