SCRIPT
Clashes erupted between protesters and riot police in Hong Kong for a second day in a row on Sunday, as the wave of protests against the now-suspended extradition bill enter their 12th week.
The protesters set up roadblocks and hurled objects at the riot police who responded with stun grenades and tear gas.
Hong Kong has seen a wave of massive protests since the end of March against a proposed law amendment which could allow Hong Kong residents to be sent to mainland China for trials.
The demonstrations then grew into a wider movement calling for reforms while condemning the government and police.
The police have been accused of resorting to violence, including the use of tear gas and rubber bullets, to quell protesters.
