SCRIPT
Dozens of masked protesters vandalised Sha Tin Mass Transit Railway (MTR) station on Sunday, using metal bars to smash up a ticket machine, turnstiles and other station infrastructure.
Police deployed tear gas within the station in an attempt to disperse the protesters. Hong Kong has been rocked since March by demonstrations sparked by a planned, but now-withdrawn extradition bill.
The rallies have evolved into a movement with wider grievances against the Hong Kong administration.
Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam introduced a law banning face masks and gatherings of more than three people by using emergency powers on October 4, in a move intended to clamp down on the protests. The Emergency Regulations Ordinance law Lam utilised was last applied during riots in 1967 and is seen by anti-government demonstrators as an authoritarian act.
