Hong Kong police says over 1,300 people arrest since protest begin

Hong Kong police said 1,365 people, including people as young as 12 years old, were arrested since the beginning of the sometimes violent demonstrations in Hong Kong. The current unrest was originally prompted by anger over planned legislation to allow extraditions to China, but has broadened into calls for democracy and for Communist rulers in Beijing to leave the city alone. China denies meddling and has accused the United States, Britain and others of fomenting the unrest. Police have responded to violence in recent weeks with tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, several live shots into the air, water cannon and baton charges, prompting complaints of excessive force.
