SCMP - Battles and brawls in Hong Kong’s commercial heart as peaceful protest turns ugly

  • Masked mobs set fire to a railway station exit and beat man unconscious after marchers defy police ban to press the government to answer their demands

  • At least eight wounded, three seriously, in a day of petrol bombs, water cannons, rubber bullets and tear gas

The Hong Kong protestors seem to be deliberately trying to get the police to crack down hard on them, maybe so the US can get on its high-horse to cause more trouble. There some very voilent video scenes here.

Earlier in the day on Gloucester Road in Wan Chai, a middle-aged man said to be a government supporter was kicked, punched and stomped unconscious by protesters. He was sent to Queen Mary Hospital in Pok Fu Lam and his condition later improved from “critical” to “serious”.
