Rampaging protesters’ trail of destruction in Hong Kong’s legislature revealed, with doors and windows smashed, walls defaced and monitors wrecked

Smashed glass doors, broken monitors, electronic control panels and surveillance cameras wrenched from their positions and vandalised meeting rooms told of the volume of violence used by anti-government protesters who breached Hong Kong’s legislature on Monday.

The damage was fully revealed on Wednesday during a 1½-hour tour organised by the Legislative Council Secretariat for journalists to survey the inside of the building, which had been sealed off by police for their continuing investigation. The power was still working and lighting and air conditioning appeared to be in good condition on the lower floors. Reporters did not visit lawmakers’ offices, located on the higher floors.
