Hong Kong police fire tear gas at demonstrators

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hong Kong police fired multiple volleys of tear gas on Wednesday (June 12) at demonstrators who threw plastic bottles in running battles outside the city's legislature, angry at an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered peacefully in the Chinese-ruled city before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas.

Police warned them back, saying: "We will use force." The protesters, most of them young people dressed in black, had erected barricades as they prepared to hunker down for an extended occupation of the area, in scenes reminiscent of pro-democracy "Occupy" protests that gridlocked the former British colony in 2014.

Protesters rallied in and around Lung Wo Road, a main east-west artery near the offices of embattled Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, as hundreds of armed riot police, some with plastic shields, warned them to stop advancing.
