Hong Kong Police Search for Activists on Buses
Video shared by VOA’s Mandarin Service shows police stopping and searching buses, Saturday, September 28, following a massive pro-democracy rally that ended in violent clashes.
Renewed clashes broke out in Hong Kong Saturday night as police used water cannon and tear gas to disperse hardcore protesters hurling Molotovs and bricks after tens of thousands rallied peacefully in a nearby park.
Huge crowds had gathered to mark the fifth anniversary of the “Umbrella Movement”, the failed pro-democracy campaign that laid the groundwork for the massive protests currently engulfing the finance hub.
Tens of thousands crammed into a park outside the city’s parliament, the same site that was the epicenter of the 2014 protests.
