Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at demonstrators who are hurling rocks in a rural Hong Kong town on Saturday. It came while several thousand activists gathered to protest an attack by suspected triad gang members at a train station last weekend. Police are widely criticized for failing to better protect the public from last weekend's attack.

Activists held the march in Yuen Long despite a police ban on safety grounds. Several hundred protesters remained until dark fell, fighting with police in the local train station, where blood could be seen spattered on the floor.
