Hong Kong Police Use Tear Gas to Counter Protest Petrol Bombs
Hong Kong police fired tear gas to break up anti-government protests in an industrial suburb, Saturday, August 24, after activists threw petrol bombs and bricks.
The latest clashes came as China freed a British consulate worker, whose detention had fueled tensions.
It was the first time police had used tear gas in 10 days, after a series of mostly peaceful demonstrations. (Reuters)
