In Hong Kong: No Celebration, 'Only a National Tragedy'

Schoolmates of Tsang Chi-kin 18 who was shot in the chest by police take part in a protest at their school

It has deepened anger against police, who have been accused of being heavy-handed against protesters.

Hong Kong office workers and high-school students turned out in their hundreds under a sweltering midday sun on Wednesday to denounce a policeman for shooting and wounding a teenager during the most violent clashes in almost four months of unrest.

Police responded with tear gas in some areas.

The lawyer for an 18-year-old Hong Kong student protester shot in the chest by police was due to appear in court on his behalf on Thursday, after the teenager was charged over his role in violent demonstrations.

The wounded protester was taken to the hospital in critical condition where he underwent emergency surgery.

However, such legislative actions are largely symbolic since mainland suppliers could easily replace Hong Kong's riot control gear, but the region's government will struggle to ignore foreign political pressure as it weighs additional measures against the protesters.

"It really disappointed me and let me down about the policeman".

If they don't, Beijing will ultimately crush the protests no matter how much economic and reputational damage that does. "It's a real gun". "When other officers tried to save him, protesters threw bricks at them, so when an officer felt that officers' lives were under serious threat, he fired a live round".

In the documents seen by Reuters, the police manual changed some guidelines on how officers could act when considering force. A reported 15,000 soldiers marched while The Ministry of National Defence claimed that 59 different elements of the armed forces would be present, with the most threatening weapon to be unveiled the latest road-mobile DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile, which reach as far as the USA in just 30 minutes according to reports.

The move would come shortly after a protester was shot in violent demonstrations that once again shook the city on October 1, as President Xi Jinping celebrated 70 years of Communist party rule in Beijing.

The conflict was over pro-Hong Kong posters and signage that was put up on a wall outside Aberdeen's Canada Line station in support of protestors in Hong Kong. -China trade war and a global slowdown.

The emergency law has been invoked only once in Hong Kong's history, as part of the response to rioting in 1967.

Hong Kong stocks briefly jumped on the reports in afternoon trade, rapidly erasing an earlier decline.

The European Union said in a statement it was deeply troubled by the escalation of violence and the only way forward was through "restraint, de-escalation and dialogue".

The protesters have won what they originally came out for: the withdrawal of the extradition law. Of 96 charged after violence on Sunday, eight were under 18, some were students, others had jobs ranging from waiter, teacher and surveyor to sales manager, construction worker and a hotel employee.

As protests escalate in Hong Kong, a pro-democracy group in Ottawa is claiming to have been attacked by Chinese nationalists. The Beijing supporters tore down a Lennon Wall set up by the pro-democracy demonstrators, leaving only a few sticky notes left.
