Hong Kong police arrested more than 200 people in one night for various offenses, including participating in illegal gatherings, possessing dangerous weapons and wearing  mask.

In the incident late Saturday, police had to release tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons to disperse protesters.

However, earlier this morning, violent incidents continued to spread from Hong Kong island to Kowloon in the north.

Angry protesters after Beijing were seen trying to interfere in Hong Kong’s freedom of expression, after it was relinquished by Britain in 1997, but China denied the allegations.

Previously, protesters targeted the firm’s buildings from the mainland or suspected of being pro-Beijing, but an attack on China’s official Xinhua news agency yesterday was considered a challenge to the government.

In July, protesters attacked the China Office of Foreign Relations, a symbol of the country’s sovereignty in the city, with graffiti.

Xinhua condemned the attack and said it was being carried out by a gang of thugs, who broke the door and security systems, as well as throwing fire and paint bombs into the lobby.

“Riot action, showing that efforts to restore peace and prevent violence from continuing in Hong Kong, is extremely important and needs to be done immediately”, a Xinhua spokesman said on Facebook.
