Hong Kong commemorates 31st anniversary of Tiananmen Square protests

Protesters take part in a candlelight vigil at Victoria Park in Hong Kong on Thursday to mark the 31st anniversary of the crackdown of pro-democracy protests at Beijing's Tiananmen Square in 1989, after police rejected a mass annual vigil on public health grounds. The vigil comes amid increasing tensions after Beijing gave the green light last week to move ahead with a controversial national security law that would broaden its power over the financial hub.
