(Worthy News) - Hong Kong demonstrators clashed with police into the early hours of Thursday, throwing petrol bombs and venting their anger over the shooting of a teenager earlier in the week, as months of anti-government protests showed no sign of letting up.
Police urged the government to impose curfews to help curb the escalating violence in the Chinese-ruled city, where officers have become a target of protesters amid accusations of excessive force.
Activists went on the rampage in districts across the Asian financial hub late into the night, setting fires, blocking roads and vandalizing shops and metro stations as police fired tear gas to disperse them. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]
