Violence returns to Hong Kong streets on the 12th weekend of anti-government protests

Thousands of Hongkongers took part in an anti-government protests for a 12th consecutive weekend, but violence erupted when riot police and protesters clashed outside a police station in Kowloon. Police fired tear gas and rounds of non-lethal ammunition to disperse the crowd, which retreated a few blocks away. The protesters regrouped and put up barricades, resulting in another stand-off and firing of tear gas to clear the road.
