Hong Kong Riots Continue, At Least 72 Hospitalized

Reuters reports Hong Kong riot police and protesters clashed again Thursday after a day of violence over the highly controversial extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Police fired rubber bullets, tear gas and pepper spray this week to get demonstrators to leave the cityโ€™s legislature.

As of 10pm on Wednesday evening, the Hong Kong Hospital Authority reported 72 people had been hospitalized, including two determined to be serious.
