Protests against a contentious extradition bill turned violent in Hong Kong on June 12, 2019, as police used pepper spray and tear gas to disperse thousands of demonstrators from an area near the city's legislative complex.
Many of the protesters had spent the night near the Legislative Council building, and in the morning began to use metal barricades and bricks to build obstacles.
Riot police using shields and batons fired pepper spray and tear gas at demonstrators, who carried umbrellas and wore goggles and masks.
In the afternoon, Hong Kong Police Commissioner Stephen Lo Wai-chung declared the clashes to be a "riot", raising serious implications for anyone arrested in connection with the demonstration.
The Legislative Council was forced to delay its planned second reading of the government bill.
