Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters clashed with riot police in the city's upmarket business district and on university campuses Tuesday, November 12, extending one of the most violent stretches of unrest seen in more than five months of political chaos.
👉The confrontations followed a particularly brutal day on Monday, when police shot a protester and a man was set on fire, prompting calls from western powers for compromise but further fury in China against the challenge to its rule.
During the morning rush hour hardcore protesters blocked roads, threw objects onto rail tracks and held up subway trains, sparking yet another bout of transport chaos throughout the city. (AFP)
