Police used pepper and balloon sprayers against a small group of protesters who filled the road, at a protest in Sha Tin, located between the main urban areas around the port and the Chinese border.

It caused masked protesters to react by erecting restrictions from iron fences, thereby sparking tensions with riot police.

Over the past month, Hong Kong has been rocked by massive protests in large numbers, as well as a series of separate violence against police personnel, triggered by a bill allowing extradition to mainland China and other countries.

Last month, the parliament suffered damage after hundreds of masked protesters led youth into the building.

Even though the bill was postponed before it was canceled, it was not enough to curb public anger.

It later turned into a bigger movement to call for democratic reform, voting rights and the suspension of independence in the semi-autonomous hub.
