HONG KONG – Police and pro-democracy protesters battled on the streets of the city again as thousands of people rallied in several districts.
After two weeks of relative calm in the five-month-long crisis, the rally on Sunday drew broad-based support from regular citizens including young families and the elderly. But a more radical faction of young protesters later clashed with the police.
The Civil Human Rights Front said around 350,000 people took part.
