Hong Kong Demonstrations Continue To Escalate

Hong Kong police said they arrested 36 people after violent anti-government demonstrations.

Protesters threw Molotov cocktails at security forces who then responded with water cannon and tear gas.

According to Reuters, protests began in mid-June over a now-suspended extradition bill.

This bill would have allowed Hong Konh people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Police said in a statement six officers drew their pistols and one officer fired a warning shot into the air.
