SCRIPT
Police arrested protesters in the Mong Kok district of Hong Kong on Sunday after clashes occurred during the ongoing anti-government demonstrations.
Footage shows rally-goers being tackled and detained by the police as well as what is seemingly a bystander being attacked by protesters. Demonstrators can also be seen vandalising Mong Kok subway station.
Despite a ban having been introduced on face masks and gatherings of more than three people on October 4, masked protesters keep rallying on Hong Kong streets.
Hong Kong has been rocked since March by demonstrations sparked by a planned, but now-withdrawn extradition bill.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.
