In Hong Kong, anti-government protesters paralysed parts of the city for a fourth day today.

The protests forced school closures and blocking highways and other transport links to disrupt the financial hub amid a marked escalation of violence.

Black-clad anti-government protesters and university students maintained their blockades of major roads, including the entrance to the Cross-Harbour Tunnel that links Hong Kong island to the Kowloon area. Police fired tear gas near the tunnel early today to try to clear the protesters.

Demonstrators are angry about what they see as police brutality and meddling by China. Beijing denies interfering and has blamed Britain and the United States, for stirring up trouble.
