Hong Kong Protesters Escalate

AP: Hong Kong residents deface Chinese emblem in latest protest
Hundreds of thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators took to the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday, with some of the marchers defacing a national Chinese emblem in their latest expression of protest against mainland authorities.

After the march reached its designated end point in Hong Kong’s Wan Chai district, thousands continued onward, at various points occupying key government and business districts before departing for the Liaison Office, which represents China’s Communist Party-led central government within the city.

Protesters threw eggs at the building and spray-painted its surrounding surveillance cameras. China’s national emblem, which adorns the front of the Liaison Office, was splattered with black ink.
