  • Police fire tear gas to disperse protesters in Hong Kong

    Hong Kong has descended into chaos as triad gangs have waded into the conflict, attacking anti-Chinese activists inside trains and on the platforms near the Chinese border. Masked men wearing white T-shirts brutally beat protesters in a new escalation which is set to ratchet up fears that the city's feared Triad gangs are becoming an increasing presence in the conflict. Massive pro-democracy protests began last month in opposition to a contentious extradition bill that would have allowed Hong Kong residents to stand trial in mainland China, where critics say their rights would be compromised. Marching in sweltering heat and humidity of around 85F, protesters dressed in black walked behind a large banner reading 'Independent Inquiry for Rule of Law'. As the protest wore on, riot police (bottom right) fired tear gas (left) at protesters wielding makeshift shields made from umbrellas, road signs and even suitcases (top right).
