Water cannon trucks deployed in Hong Kong as demonstrators clash with police

Police shoot pepper spray as they try to detain protesters inside a train at Prince Edward station in Hong Kong Saturday

On Sunday, the MTR Corp. suspended train service to the airport after several hundred protesters gathered there following calls online to disrupt transportation.

Police put blue dye in water cannons, meant to stain protesters and mark them out for arrest later.

Teargas and coloured blue water has been fired dramatically from a water cannon truck at raging protesters who threw gasoline bombs at government headquarters in Hong Kong. "Every weekend we see police blatantly beating up protesters, beating up normal citizens, tear-gassing in residential areas, arresting people on false charges".

Pro-democracy protesters walk back after gathering outside the airport in, Hong Kong on Sunday.

Twenty-five flights were cancelled.

Students are calling for a boycott of classes on Monday, the first day of the new term.

Hong Kong's chief secretary Matthew Cheung warned that the school student strike was "extremely irresponsible".

In Vancouver, previous pro-Hong Kong demonstrations have been met by pro-Beijing counter-protesters, but Saturday's rally did not attract the same response.

At the rally in Vancouver, protesters wore black and donned symbols of solidarity with the Hong Kong protesters, who have taken to the streets each weekend to oppose executive administrator Carrie Lam's failure to withdraw an extradition bill, as well as the police violence.

About 1,000 people marched to a Methodist church and police headquarters.

U.S. braced as 'catastrophic' hurricane crashes into Bahamas
Hurricane Dorian is crawling westward at just 1 miles per hour (1.6 kph) as it lashes the northern Bahamas with destructive winds. Residents of the Abacos, where Dorian first hit, are advised to remain in their shelters until conditions subside later Monday.

Police said they arrested 63 people aged between 13 and 36. FRANCE 24 was unable to confirm whether the police vehicles in use were supplied by the same company as those in Hong Kong, but the brochure of the exhibition where the Cerberus vehicles were unveiled listed Armoric Holding as one of the "happy few" suppliers of such equipment in the world.

Local media reported the two officers had been dressed as protesters. They are keeping a close eye on the situation and are disturbed by media reports that show police hurting protesters. On Friday, several of the most prominent pro-democracy lawmakers and activists in the city were rounded up by the police, in an unmistakable warning that authorities would brook no infractions of a ban they had lowered on the march that an established advocacy group had planned for Saturday.

The Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Sunday rejected some USA congressmen's remarks on Hong Kong and strongly condemned their blatant interference in China's internal affairs.

All transport links to and from the airport were cut off for hours, until a large contingent of riot police arrived and cleared roads leading to the city.

Also on Sunday, about 200 protesters outside the British Consulate in the city waved British flags and chanted "Equal rights now!" and "Stand with Hong Kong!"

Later that night police stormed an underground railway carriage and hit passengers with batons and pepper spray.

"Some passengers kneeled before them asking them to stop but ... were beaten even harder".

Many wanted Britain to grant citizenship to people born in Hong Kong before 1997.

Hong Kong was returned to China under a "one country, two systems" formula that allows it freedoms not enjoyed on the mainland, such as the right to protest and an independent legal system.

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside Hong Kong's worldwide airport on Sunday, disrupting travel as they seek to focus global attention on their fight for greater democracy in a city facing its biggest political crisis in decades.
