HONG KONG: Hundreds of protesters in Hong Kong have blocked train services during the morning rush hour, causing commuter chaos, authorities said.

Activists blocked train doors on Tuesday, creating havoc with services and forcing hundreds of people to stream out of railway stations in search of alternative transport.

Rallies against an extradition bill, which would have allowed people in Hong Kong to be sent to mainland China for trial, have now evolved into a wider backlash against the city’s government and its overseers in Beijing.

Protests have been taking place almost daily, sometimes with little notice, piling pressure on Hong Kong’s beleaguered government and stretching the city’s police force, which some have accused of using excessive force.

“We don’t know how long we are going to stay here, we don’t have a leader, as you can see this is a mass movement now,” said Sharon, a 21-year-old masked protester who declined to give her full name.
