China Condemns “Riots” Hong Kong

Hong Kong Protest

China is not pleased with the massive protests in Hong Kong against a controversial extradition law.

A spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that in the Admiralty neighbourhood “there was no peaceful manifestation, but a riot organized by a group.”

Hong Kong police applied tear gas and rubber bullets on Wednesday to disperse demonstrators.

They demonstrated against a bill that should make it possible to extradite suspects to China. Beijing expressed support on Thursday for the way the Hong Kong authorities have intervened.
