  1. Reuters reported Monday that activists hurled 20 petrol bombs at a police station, an explosive device was detonated as a police car drove by and that the neck of one officer was slashed.

    “Violence against police has reached a life-threatening level,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Tang Ping-Keung said, according to the wire service. “They are not protesters, they are rioters and criminals. Whatever cause they are fighting for it never justifies such violence.”

    For months, the Chinese-ruled city has been facing massive and sometimes violent pro-democracy protests. Protesters have demanded universal suffrage and an independent probe into alleged police brutality.
