HONG KONG (AP) — The Latest on protests in Hong Kong (all times local):
Protesters have burned a Chinese flag and police fired pepper spray during a march in an outlying district of Hong Kong in renewed clashes over anti-government grievances.
Police accused protesters of spraying water at officers during the march Saturday by several thousand people in Tuen Mun in Hong Kong’s northwest. Reporters saw at least one person arrested.
The event was relatively small compared with previous demonstrations that have taken place every weekend since June. The protests started with opposition to a proposed extradition law and have expanded to include demands for greater democracy.
