The protest marches which started last month in Hong Kong culminated in episodes of ugly violence at the Legislative Council (LegCo) Complex on Monday.
As 30,000 protesters surrounded the LegCo building, hundreds stormed inside by breaking glass panels and damaging the building's steel shutters. Once they entered the LegCo chamber, the protesters vandalised and destroyed equipment, portraits and documents. They also painted graffiti all over the walls. It was the worst violence seen in Hong Kong in recent years.
