Wearing black, clutching flowers and candles, and waving mobile phone flashlights, Hongkongers found ways to commemorate the Tiananmen Massacre on Friday despite police warnings and heavy law enforcement deployment across the city. With the Victoria Park vigil banned, hundreds gathered in the surrounding streets to mark 32 years since the crackdown. Police made at least six arrests.
