Hong Kong police ‘overwhelmed’ as anti-government protesters unleash new level of violence

Hong Kong police officials on Tuesday admitted to being overwhelmed by a new level of violence unleashed by anti-government protesters across the city on National Day – but insisted that the performance of the force was effective. Police leaders said the response of officers – including the use of live bullets that left an 18-year-old student hospitalised with a gunshot wound to the chest – was proportional to the level of aggression that erupted in marathon citywide protests.
