HONG KONG – There is no respite in violence the Asian business hub have been witnessing since early June despite the formal withdrawal of the extradition bill. Sunday marked another weekend when the city witnessed widespread chaos throughout the business district on the Hong Kong Island as the mobs targeted subway stations.

They pried bricks from the ground, threw those into the stations, removed roadside iron railings, and set fire to objects they gathered. They broke windows, damaged the interior and even set alight an exit of the Central MTR station.

The vandalism continued from Saturday night when the violent radicals clashed with the law enforcers at several subway stations as the protests entered the 14th weekend.
