Hong Kong protesters are set to rally for a second day on Sunday in an area popular with mainland Chinese shoppers as anger over the government's handling of an extradition bill revives other grievances, such as an influx of cross-border visitors.
On Saturday, a largely peaceful demonstration in a town close to the Chinese border turned violent as protesters hurled umbrellas and hardhats at police, who retaliated by swinging batons and firing pepper spray.
The protests are the latest in a wave of demonstrations that have rocked the former British colony for more than a month, fuelling its biggest political crisis since China regained control of the territory in 1997.
The focus of the rallies has switched from the extradition bill, which would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial, to broader issues that have roused deep-seated tension between Hong Kong people and mainland Chinese.
