Hong Kong, Sep 23: Hong Kong protesters on Sunday disrupted subway station, trampled and set fires on Chinese flags as anti-government again took a violent turn while demonstrating in the city against a controversial extradition bill that would allow suspects in the territory to be sent to mainland China for court prosecution.

According to Al-Jazeera news reports, protests went violent outside a mall in the city on Sunday as demonstrators clashed with Hong Kong police, firing rounds of rubber bullets and tear gas, capping a day inside a mall with thousands of protesters

Authorities ordered to shut down rail and bus line that links to the international airport in a successful bid to prevent pro-democratic protesters from entering the local transport and stations. Hong Kong international airport has been taken widely as a frequent focal point to protest, since July when the rally erupted.

Hong Kong activists and Xinjiang on Friday shared the stage to raise their voices against the atrocities and human rights violations by China at the ongoing 42nd session of United Nation Human Right Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

Two Hong Kong activists – Andy Li and Beatrice Li, presented used rubber batons, tear gas canister, rubber rocket, smoke grenade, and other difference defence measures used by the Hong Kong police against the anti-government protester.

Both activists said the Hong Kong civilians are opposed to fundamental human rights and are passing their days in fear of being beaten or targeted by the Hong Kong police, according to ANI news reports.

A new Amnesty International investigation has presented a document condemning Hong Kong police for using “reckless and unlawful” against anti-government protesters throughout the three-month of mass protests against a controversial extradition bill.

The body has documented shreds of evidence of brutality pursued by the Hong Kong police to tackle demonstrations, including indiscriminative tactics used while arresting dissenters and evidence of “torture” and other ill-treatment in detention, according to Al-Jazeera news reports.

Amnesty International interviewed 21 detained protesters and summoned corroborating testimonies and evidence from health workers, lawyers, and others. It gathered exclusive pieces of information of severe torture and beating tactics used by police.
