Hong Kong protesters vandalize subway station, storm mall

WEB DESK

Protesters in Hong Kong smashed windows in a subway station and a shopping mall on Sunday following the arrest of pro-democracy lawmakers. Authorities closed the subway stop in the northeastern district of Sha Tin after protesters broke windows and damaged a ticket machine.

Police in riot gear stood guard but there was no indication of arrests.
In a separate incident, about three dozen protesters stormed through a shopping mall in the northwestern district of Tsuen Mun. Most were peaceful but one protester used a club to smash windows while others overturned tables in a restaurant.

Hong Kong is in the sixth month of protests that began over a proposed China extradition law and have expanded to include demands for greater democracy and other grievances.

Activists complain the government of Chief Executive Carrie Lam and Beijing are eroding the autonomy and Western-style civil liberties promised to Hong Kong when the former British colony returned to China in 1997.

Hong Kong is preparing for elections November 24 that are viewed as a measure of public sentiment toward the government.

More than 3,300 people have been arrested since the start of the protest movement, which has expanded to include calls for direct elections for the city’s leaders and other demands.
