The violence came on the fifth anniversary of a decision by China to curtail democratic reforms in the former British colony, which returned to China in 1997.

Police fired round after round of tear gas and protesters took cover behind umbrellas between the local headquarters of China's People's Liberation Army and the government.

Protesters also threw bricks dug up from pathways at police.

Other demonstrators, many wearing black and face masks, marched in the Causeway Bay shopping district.
