Hong Kong protesters throw petrol bombs as police respond with tear gas | ITV News

Pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong have turned violent, with petrol bombs and bricks thrown outside government offices.

Police responded by spraying chemical-laced blue water from a water cannon, and firing tear gas.

A mixed crowd of hardcore protesters in black and wearing masks, along with families with children, spilled into the roads of the Causeway Bay shopping belt and marched for more than a mile to the Central business district, in defiance of a police ban.
