Hong Kong police fire tear gas, hit protesters in subway

The former British colony has been rocked by anti-government protests, with many chafing at Chinese rule.

Footage captured by local television showed police beating protesters with batons and pushing several of them to the ground as protesters attempted to scramble into the metro station.

Police were seen following the protesters down the escalator as they tried to escape.

The increasingly violent protests since June have plunged the Asian financial hub into its most serious crisis in decades and are one of the biggest popular challenges to Chinese leader Xi Jinping since he came to power in 2012.
