Violence erupts at Hong Kong protest

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A massive protest against an extradition bill in Hong Kong erupted into violence and scuffles on Wednesday (June 12) as protesters tried to break into the Hong Kong legislative council building in the afternoon.

Protesters moved forward with barricades and threw objects before hundreds of armed riot police came out, mostly with shields to clear them out.

Police used pepper spray and batons on the protesters, after warning earlier that they "will use force." Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered near the legislative council building in the Chinese-ruled city before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas.

Police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators in response.

The government said debate on the bill that was due to take place in the city's 70-seat Legislative Council on Wednesday would be delayed until further notice.

The legislature is controlled by a pro-Beijing majority.
