HONG KONG: Hong Kong police on Sunday arrested 29 people after clashes overnight as the Asian financial hub braced for further demonstrations in the day.

Activists on Saturday threw petrol bombs and bricks at the gritty industrial area of Kwun Tong, a densely populated area of the Chinese territory on the east of the Kowloon peninsula, Reuters reported.

Police used tear gas after some protesters threw Molotov cocktails and bricks and others tore up “smart” lamp posts equipped with surveillance cameras.

It was the first use of tear gas in more than a week after a series of mostly peaceful demonstrations in the former British colony.
