In Pictures: Human chain protest in Hong Kong

Hundreds of secondary school students formed human chains in districts across Hong Kong on Sept 9, 2019 in support of anti-government protesters after another weekend of clashes in the Chinese-ruled city. The day before, thousands waved the American flag and placards and sang The Star-Spangled Banner, calling on US President Donald Trump to “liberate” the city and for democracy after another night of violence in the 14th week of unrest.
