Violent anti-government rallies have continued in Hong Kong with protesters targeting hundreds of shops, Chinese banks and metro stations.
In another incident, Hong Kong police and protesters exchanged tear gas and petrol bombs after an illegal march that attracted tens of thousands descended into chaos.
Police used several water canon trucks to disperse protesters, spraying jets of blue-dye into the crowds and sending hundreds fleeing.
It was the heaviest use of water canons by police according to reports with many people hit with the water developing coughs, suggesting that an irritant may have been mixed with the water.
Hong Kong has been battered by months of often massive and violent protests over concerns that China is tightening its grip on the semi-autonomous city.
