As Hong Kong demonstrators wield sticks and follow the police, a single gunfire suddenly sounds and the police threaten the protesters with pistols.

A policeman fired a gun towards the air as a warning. This is the first time in a 12-week crime against protests against Indian legislation.

Demonstrators and police rallied violently yesterday (25th) at a rally in Hong Kong's Kaicheng district.

Police fired water cannon vehicles for the first time with tear gas, demonstrating against protesters, who threw down Molotov cocktails and bricks.

Demonstrators and police injured were in the process.

Some men also attacked protesters with sticks during the protests.

Police and demonstrators clashed 10 people and wounded 29 others in protests in Kung Tong province one day ago.

The ten-day peace protest, which took place after the occupied protests at Hong Kong International Airport, collapsed.

As the conflict reappears, concerns about China's armed involvement are growing again.

At a seminar hosted by the National Hong Kong Macau Research Group in Shenzhen, China, Chinese officials suggested the possibility of central government intervention.
