Hong Kong Rolls Out Water Cannons After Protesters Hurl Bricks & Fire Bombs
The violence between Hong Kong riot police and anti-government protesters escalated on Sunday – one of the most violent nights of pro-democracy demonstrations which began three months ago.
While largely peaceful, a group of more violent protesters broke away from the day’s march – pelting police with bricks and fire bombs. In response, police deployed tear gas and two Mercedes-Benz crowd control water cannons for the first time in 12 weeks.
