Woman hurts eye as police arrest Hong Kong protesters

WARNING: Contains graphic images.

Video taken by Hong Kong media shows emergency services surrounding a woman who injured her eye on Sunday (August 11) during another night of violent clashes between anti-government protesters and police.

Rough cut - no reporter narration.

Local media quoting passers-by said she was hit by a beanbag round fired by police in Tsim Sha Tsui and has been sent to hospital for treatment.

Police fired volleys of tear gas at protesters across the territory on Sunday and staged baton charges in flashpoints in downtown Hong Kong and in working class districts.

Demonstrators say they are fighting the erosion of the "one country, two systems" arrangement enshrining some autonomy for Hong Kong when China took it back in 1997.

They are calling on the government to listen to public demands particularly an independent investigation into the handling of the protests.

The increasingly violent protests since June have emerged as Hong Kong's most serious crisis in decades and become one of the biggest challenges to Chinese leader Xi Jinping since he took power in 2012.
