China flag desecrated as fresh unrest erupts

Activists in Hong Kong have desecrated a Chinese flag and vandalised a shopping centre on the 16th straight weekend of anti-government protests. Escalators and glass panels were targeted at the New Town Plaza in Sha Tin. Police have closed it and fired tear gas at brick-throwing protesters. Police earlier prevented major unrest on the airport metro system. The protests were sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill but morphed into a wider pro-democracy campaign. Issues such as universal suffrage, a demand for an inquiry into police actions and the alleged involvement of gangs in countering the protests have come to the fore.
