Attackers beat people on Hong Kong subway
▶️ A large group of assailants armed with metal rods and wooden poles, beat Hong Kong protesters and others inside a commuter rail station late Sunday, July 21.
👉 The official People’s Daily newspaper, in a front-page commentary headlined “Central Authority Cannot be Challenged,” called the protesters’ actions “intolerable.”
One group of protesters targeted China’s liaison office on Sunday night after more than 100,000 people marched through the city to demand democracy and an investigation into the use of force by police to disperse crowds at earlier protests.
Police launched tear gas to disperse the protesters. Later, protesters trying to return home were attacked inside a train station by assailants who appeared to target the pro-democracy demonstrators.
