Violent Clashes Erupt, Police Guard Stations: Hong Kong Update

Violence between pro-China demonstrators and other protesters in Hong Kong erupted on Saturday with angry clashes in different areas of the city on a weekend when people traditionally celebrate the Mid-Autumn festival holiday.Anti-China activists organized events to coincide with the family-oriented holiday weekend, including light shows and a lantern walk up a mountain in a break from the violence that has sometimes marred the three months of protests. The demonstrations have continued despite Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s Sept. 4 decision to withdraw the extradition legislation that sparked the unrest more than three months ago.
