Violence Spreads To Hong Kong's New Territories
Violence is spreading across Hong Kong's New Territories.
It's the 24th straight weekend of unrest there.
According to Reuters, black-clad activists blocked roads and trashed shopping malls in anti-government protests.
Protesters vandalized a train station in the central new town of Sha Tin.
They also smashed up a restaurant perceived as being pro-Beijing, overturning banqueting tables and smashing glass panels.
In Tsuen Wan, west of the New Territories, police fired tear gas late into the evening to clear the streets.
The escalation in violence comes two weeks before district council elections in the Chinese-ruled city.
