Hong Kong: tear gas fired during annual New Year's Day protest

Jan 01, 2020 16:30 IST

Thousands of citizens marched on the streets of Hong Kong in keeping with the annual tradition of a New Year's Day rally in support of democracy. There was larger participation this year following months of protest against the govt demanding complete autonomy. Clashes broke out as police fired tear gas and protesters hurled petrol bombs. New Year's Eve also saw violence as police used pepper pray, tear gas and water cannons to break up the demonstrators.
