Police fire tear gas at protesters in Hong Kong

Police fire tear gas at protesters in Hong Kong in another escalation of pro-democracy demonstrations.

Hong Kong has been wracked by protests for seven weeks, as opposition to an extradition bill has grown into demands for the resignation of the city's leader, Carrie Lam, and an investigation into whether police have used excessive force in quelling the protests.
