Hong Kong protester dies from injuries


Hong Kong Police say they will fully investigate the death of a university student who reportedly fell from a building during clashes between police and protesters.
Demonstrators have made a memorial and have been holding a vigil near the site where the student was found. The events leading up to the incident are unclear, but it's believed the student fell from a multi-storey car park after police fired tear gas during a protest last weekend. The student was taken to the hospital, but later died.

Hong Kong's protesters show no signs of flagging after China suspended a proposed extradition law that allows suspects to be brought to the mainland for trial.
They're demanding an unequivocal withdrawal of the bill, an investigation into police violence and the resignation of the territory's chief executive.

Hong Kong protesters attempted to smash their way into the Hong Kong legislature by ramming a glass door repeatedly with a large metal crate.

Protesters and riot police returned to the streets of Hong Kong early Monday, July 1, to mark the 22nd anniversary of the city's reunification with China.

Thousands encircled the city's government complex in the afternoon as a small group attempted to break into the legislature, while police waited inside and fired pepper spray through the gates.

Protesters used umbrellas, goggles, masks and plastic wrap on their limbs to shield their identities from police and to protect themselves from police pepper spray.
