Hong Kong New Year's Day march called off after bricks and petrol bombs thrown

Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong on New Year's Day, but the march was later called off after police said bricks and petrol bombs had been thrown. Police used tear gas briefly Wednesday during confrontations with protesters, after what had begun as a largely peaceful event. They said "thugs" had thrown bricks and petrol bombs, set fires, and damaged banks and shops during the demonstration.
