Hong Kong protesters mourn death of student

People gather near a makeshift memorial, paying tribute to Chow Tsz-lok, 22, a university student who died after he fell during a protest in Hong Kong, China, November 8, 2019. Chow fell from the third to the second floor of a parking lot in the early hours of Monday. The 22-year-old, who studied at the University of Science and Technology (UST), fell as protesters were being dispersed by police. He died on Friday - graduation day for many UST students. His death is likely to fuel anger at police, who are under pressure over accusations of excessive force as the former British colony grapples with its worst political crisis in decades.

A police technician looks for explosive devices after a protest in the Mong Kok area in Hong Kong, November 8, 2019. Candlelight vigils quickly spiraled into street fires, bursts of tear gas and cat-and-mouse clashes between pro-democracy protesters and police. The center of violence was on Nathan Road, in the Kowloon district of Mong Kok, one of the most densely populated locations in the world, where activists built barricades and trashed an entrance to the metro station. Police used a robot to detonate a suspected explosive device on a side street after at least three blasts in the area amid a standoff with petrol-bomb throwing protesters lasting hours.
