HONG KONG CITIZENS MARCH ON, IN 'PRAYER WALK FOR HONG KONG'S SINNERS'
Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannons on Aug. 31 as pro-democracy protesters threw petrol bombs in the latest clashes that have plunged the city into its worst political crisis in decades.
Police fired round after round of tear gas as protesters took cover behind umbrellas between the local headquarters of China’s military and government. Protesters also threw bricks dug up from pathways at police.
The water cannon unleashed blue-dyed water, traditionally used to make it easier for police to identify protesters later.
