Police say the force used around 20 sponge grenades, 140 rubber bullets and 800 tear gas grenades against protesters who had blocked roads and police stations on Monday during a city-wide strike. Eight districts — Tin Shui Wai, Tuen Mun, Wong Tai Sin, North Point, Admiralty, Tai Po, Tsuen Wan, Sham Shui Po and Tsim Sha Tsui — saw demonstrations, with clashes breaking out in some residential neighbourhoods. HKFP’s May James was on the frontlines of the unrest in Mong Kok.
