Police continued to clash with anti-extradition protesters in Hong Kong on Sunday, as demonstrations continued into their tenth week.

Tear gas was fired at demonstrators while activists used high powered laser pointers to dazzle police and fireworks could be seen going off near police positions.

Protests have been ongoing in Hong Kong since the end of March against a proposed amendment to an extradition bill which would allow prisoners to be extradited to face charges in mainland China.

The demonstrations have taken on wider grievances, activists are calling for greater democracy, the release of protesters and for Carrie Lam the Chief Executive of Hong Kong and the one responsible for the extradition bill to resign.
