The death of a 22-year-old university student in Hong Kong who reportedly fell from a height amid clashes between police and pro-democracy protesters sparked an outpouring of grief in a park near the government headquarters Saturday evening.

Tens of thousands of people - young, middle-aged and old alike - began arriving at Tamar Park at around 9 pm local time (10 am GMT) to attend a ceremony mourning the death of Alex Chow Tsz-lok, who was declared dead in a hospital Friday morning. EFE-EPA
