Masked college students meet in graduation rites in Hong Kong

Pro-Beijing Hong Kong lawmaker Junius Ho was stabbed on the street while campaigning and pro-democracy candidate Andrew Chiu had a piece of his ear bitten off in a vicious brawl

The 22-year-old fell from a parking garage on Monday after police fired tear gas at the building during clashes.

Although the cause of his fall has not been determined, it deepened anger against police, who have been accused of heavy-handed tactics including widespread use of tear gas and pepper spray since protests demanding democratic reforms started in June.

Protesters have thrown petrol bombs and vandalised banks, stores and metro stations, while police have fired rubber bullets, tear gas, water cannon and, in some cases, live ammunition in scenes of chaos.

Protesters have alleged that Chow fell because he was forced to climb onto the ledge of the multi-storey vehicle park to escape multiple tear gas rounds fired into the building by police.

Protesters have claimed that police blocked an ambulance from reaching Chow, and in doing so delayed the emergency medical response.

Chow was a student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Students swarmed the hospital in support of the man, surnamed Chow, to hold prayers and gatherings and at universities across the former British colony. Protesters have been urged to dress in all black and wear masks to remember Chow.

The protests began with an extradition bill now ruled out that would have allowed people to be sent to mainland China for trial, but it has become calls for greater democracy and independent investigation into allegations of excessive force by the police, Among other demands. More than 3,300 people have been arrested and Beijing has indicated it may tighten its grip to quell the unrest.
