SCRIPT
Anti-government protesters clashed with police at Hong Kong's Polytechnic University on Sunday.
Footage shows one demonstrator hurling a petrol bomb towards police, with the latter employing water cannons and tear gas in an attempt to disperse protesters.
Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill since March.
The rallies have since evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by violent clashes between protesters and the authorities.
