Hong Kong Police Fire Pepper Spray At Protesters

Reuters reports Hong Kong police fired pepper spray at protesters near government buildings on Wednesday as tensions ramped up over an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Tens of thousands of Hong Kong demonstrators surrounded the Chinese-ruled city’s legislature earlier in the day.

The chaos forced the city to postpone a second round of debate on the extradition bill.
