(5 Nov 2019) Hong Kong police fired tear gas at pro-democracy protesters in the early hours of Wednesday as they marked the one-month anniversary of the mask ban.
Protesters were seen setting up makeshift barricades in Tseung Kwan O, a residential area in the city, where early Monday, a university student reportedly fell off an upper floor of a carpark building after police fired tear gas.
Hospital officials said on Tuesday the student was fighting for his life.
Police could not immediately provide details.
Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said investigations would be carried out to determine exactly what happened, and that the case drove home the government’s message that violence must cease.
