Hong Kong Police Dispense Tear Gas, Fire Rubber Bullets At Thousands Of Protesters

Hong Kong police fired rubber bullets and tear gas in running clashes with protesters late on Sunday.

Anger over an extradition bill has morphed into a fresh front against what many see as a broader erosion of freedoms by Beijing.

According to Reuters, thousands of protesters descended on Chinaโ€™s representative office in the city.

It was a direct challenge to authorities in Beijing, just hours after the latest demonstrations to rock the Asian financial central.
