In Hong Kong, as many as 25 people were hospitalized during protests today. Multiple skirmishes occurred earlier in the day between anti-government protesters and pro-Beijing supporters in the city.
According to RTHK broadcaster, the conflict initially started between the two groups of protesters in the morning in the Amoy Plaza mall, where several scuffles occurred.
A man with a Chinese flag hit a rival protester and he, in turn, was attacked by anti-government activists with umbrellas, which are a symbol of the pro-democracy movement.
The riot police arrived at the scene, blocked the entrance to the mall and detained many people, the broadcaster said.
American President has informed that they have an intelligence report saying the Chinese army is moving towards Hong Kong border, which may further worsen the condition in the city.
