Tens of thousand march for democratic reform in Hong Kong amid political tensions

Protesters chanted slogans in favor of democratic reform such as "there is no riot, only tyranny".

The rally organizers had initially wanted to end in Central district, close to where police in June fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse activists in a previous protest.

Police eventually curtailed the duration of the march and asked organizers to end in Wan Chai, a shopping and nightlife district.

Hong Kong has recently seen some of the most violent protests in decades.

The territory's embattled leader, Carrie Lam, has apologized for the political turmoil caused by a controversial extradition bill and declared it "dead." Opponents say nothing short of its full withdrawal will do.
