At least 10 people were injured when fireworks were shot from a moving car into a crowd of pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong. Video on social media showed people running for cover, as fiery trails were shot towards them outside a police station in Tin Shui Wai district.

 

Tensions are high in Hong Kong after weeks of anti-government protests. The incident today came as more than 40 activists appeared in court charged with rioting, after a protest on Sunday ended in violent clashes with police. If convicted, they could face up to 10 years in prison.
