Water cannon breaks up Guy Fawkes protest in Hong Kong

Hong Kong police fired water cannon at protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks and crowding the tourist streets of Tsim Sha Tsui where at least one restaurant was vandalized.

China’s Communist Party, in a lengthy statement about decisions reached at a key leadership meeting known as a plenum last week, said it would improve the national security system in Hong Kong, as well as in Macau, though it gave no details.

The party decided to “establish a robust legal system and enforcement mechanism to safeguard national security in the special administrative regions and support them to strengthen law enforcement.”
