A march that attracted thousands in Hong Kong descended into clashes between protesters and police officers on Sunday as anti-government protests played out in the semi-autonomous city for the 15th consecutive week.

At around 5.30 pm local time (9.30 am GMT), three hours after a march banned by the police kicked off, riot police fired water cannons containing blue dye and teargas rounds to disperse protesters in Admiralty, the area where the government headquarters are located. EFE-EPA
