Breaking News : Tear gas and clashes at democracy protest in Hong Kong
Hong Kong police have used tear gas to disperse thousands of pro-democracy protesters near the government complex, after a week of escalating tensions. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested, with hundreds remaining in the city centre late on Sunday. Protesters want the Chinese government to scrap rules allowing it to vet Hong Kong's top leader in the 2017 poll. Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung said the demonstration was "illegal" and elections would go ahead as planned. China has also condemned the protest, and offered "its strong backing" to the Hong Kong government. Below is a Live Video Feed of from Apple Daily Hong Kong.
