Tear Gas Fired as Marchers Defy Police Ban: Hong Kong Update

Police fired tear gas at demonstrators after tens of thousands defied a police ban and marched through the city streets following the arrest of several top opposition figures including Joshua Wong on Friday.

The arrests signaled a harder line by the government against the largely leaderless movement, which began in June over a bill allowing extraditions to mainland China before morphing into a wider push against Beijing’s grip on the city. Wong and a fellow activist were later released on bail.
