The Hong Kong city was hit by chaos with violent protest last night, after the anti-police fired tear gas and rubber bullets towards anti-government protesters.

The incident took place hours after near the Chinese Government office here, throwing eggs and graffiti paintings, thus being considered an open opponent of the Beijing government.

Following that, the smoke from tear gas enters the business area, as the police contingents were trying to break down violent protests at the financial hub.

At the same time, masked groups believed to be among the supporters also gathered at the railway station, the location of the protesters, confronted with police including reporters who broadcast the incident directly.

Over the past few weeks, Hong Kong has been rocked by various rallies and incidents of violent confrontation involving police and protesters.

Initially, the demonstration was triggered by the extradition bill that had been suspended from its implementation.

However, since then, protests have spread to greater mobility for pressing democratic changes, voting rights and independence in the semi-autonomous region.

In the rally yesterday, protesters gathered at Yuen Long, one of the districts of Hong Kong, located in the northwest near the Chinese border, where criminal groups still had a big influence.

Hence, the attacks by the masked men in this protest, raised concerns over various parties on the involvement of secret societies in political conflicts.
