Tear gas, water cannons as marchers defy police in Hong Kong demo

Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon Saturday as thousands of democracy protesters defied authorities in another unsanctioned march after Beijing vowed to tighten control over the restless city. Hardcore protesters hurled bricks and petrol bombs and vandalised multiple subway stations and businesses perceived to be pro-China — including the office of China’s state-run Xinhua news agency, which had its windows smashed.
