Hong Kong Protest

Protests have gripped Hong Kong since June 2019, sparked by highly controversial laws to extradite those convicted of crimes to mainland China.

Police have fired rubber bullets, tear gas and pepper spray at protesters in a bid to clear a demonstration outside a subway station, marking the latest clash in 14 weeks of protests.

Lots of protesters - many masked and dressed in black - gathered at the Prince Edward station in Mong Kok on Friday (September 6, 2019) behind umbrellas and barricades made from street fencing.

Previously, protesters blocked roads to the territory's airport, disrupting the operation of the major Asian transport hub.

Trains to the airport were halted and roads blocked and passengers had to walk to the terminal.

Thousands of pro-democracy protesters then tried to enter the terminal building but were stopped by riot police.
