HONG KONG (Reuters) - Police in Hong Kong fired tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters on Sunday, a day after violent clashes between anti-government protesters and police, as China’s official news said Beijing would not let the situation go on.

The Chinese-controlled city has been rocked by months of protests against a proposed bill to allow people to be extradited to stand trial in mainland China and a general strike aimed at bringing the city to a halt is planned for Monday.
