Hong Kong police have used tear gas as new clashes with protesters broke out across the city. Police say protesters ignored warnings to leave and hurled bricks at officers before they responded by firing the gas. In the tenth weekend of increasingly violent protests in the territory, protesters marched in several parts of the city in defiance of a police ban. Calling for more democracy and greater autonomy from China, the protest movement is increasingly staging so-called “hit and run” demonstrations to avoid a police crackdown. The demonstrations began in opposition to a law that would have permitted extradition to mainland China and expanded into calls for more democracy and greater autonomy from China.
