HONG KONG: Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon on Saturday on pro-democracy protesters.

Police fired round after round of tear gas as protesters took cover behind umbrellas between the local headquarters of China’s People’s Liberation Army and government HQ. Protesters also threw bricks dug up from pathways, at police.

The water cannon fired blue-dyed water, traditionally used elsewhere in the world to make it easier for police to identify protesters later.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.
