HONG KONG – Authorities shut some government offices in Hong Kong’s financial district after the worst violence the city has seen in decades.
The crowds on Thursday largely dispersed around government headquarters – where police and protesters had pitched battles on Wednesday.
The protesters were angry about plans to allow extradition to mainland China.
Despite the widespread opposition, the government has not backed down.
However, Hong Kong’s Legislative Council delayed a second reading of the controversial extradition bill and it was unclear when it will take place. (BBC)
