Hong Kong police use tear gas to break up protests

The latest clashes came as China freed a British consulate worker, whose detention had fueled tensions.

It was the first time police had used tear gas in 10 days, after a series of mostly peaceful demonstrations.

Smoke from tear gas continued to linger into the night, as police tried to disperse protesters that regrouped at the Wong Tai Sin MTR station.

There is still no sign that the anti-government protesters will back down, almost three months after the demonstrations began.
