Police used tear gas and pepper spray on protesters as they gathered outside Prince Edward railway station on Saturday to mark six months since major clashes.

Demonstrators threw leaflets and laid flowers at the subway station which police stormed on August 31, arresting dozens.

Riot police used tear gas and pepper spray to disperse protesters and clear roadblocks, as protesters overturned garbage bins.

The protests in Hong Kong which began last year were largely triggered by an amendment bill for the extradition of criminal fugitives which led to concerns among Hong Kong residents that the bill would subject them to foreign rules, notably those of mainland China.
