Hong Kong police arrest 29 after overnight clashes, more protests planned

Hong Kong police said on Sunday they arrested 29 people after clashes overnight in which volleys of tear gas were fired to disperse anti-government protesters, as the Asian financial hub braced for more demonstrations later in the day. Activists threw petrol bombs and bricks on Saturday in the gritty industrial area of Kwun Tong, a densely populated area of the Chinese territory on the east of the Kowloon peninsula.

Four MTR subway stations were closed due to the protests. Police used tear gas after some protesters threw Molotov.
