Hong Kong protest gets fiery

Police stand guard on a road to deter pro-democracy protesters from blocking roads in the Mong Kok district of Hong Kong on Wednesday evening, as the city’s legislature debates over a law that bans insulting China's national anthem. Hong Kong police cast a dragnet around the financial hub's legislature on May 27, firing pepper-ball rounds and arresting hundreds as they stamped down on protests against a bill banning insults to China's national anthem.
