Annoyed by Hong Kong movement, Jinping threatens, says - I'll break the bone of protestors

Shocked at not stopping the protests in Hong Kong, Chinese President Xi Jinping gave a strict warning to dissidents that any attempt to break China would be "shattered". The BBC quoted Chinese government broadcaster CCTV as saying that his remarks came during a state visit to Nepal on Sunday.

Many peaceful Hong Kong rallies turned into clashes between riot police and protesters on Sunday. Pro-Beijing public transport stations and shops were damaged. Rallies were taken out in several areas and at least 27 stations on the MTR-Hong Kong metro were closed by Sunday afternoon. Police said they used very little force to disperse the protesters, but in television footage, It was seen that people shopping at the weekend also fell in the chaos.

After the officials reached the shopping center, some were seen screaming and injured. Police used force on people shouting slogans in support of protesters in a shopping mall. According to the South China Morning Post, the administration said a petrol bomb was hurled at the Mong Kok police station and a police officer's neck was cut. The condition of the police officer is stable. Another person was allegedly severely beaten by the protesters, as he found a stick in his bag and was deemed to be an undercover police officer. Protests began in June in Hong Kong against proposals to allow extradition to China.

Although the bill was later withdrawn, widespread protests continued and protesters are demanding full democracy and police brutality claims be investigated. Since the beginning of civil disobedience, more than 2,300 people have been arrested.
