Hong Kong: Heavy police presence marks local elections

Masked police officers guarded polling stations in Hong Kong on Sunday as voters turned out for the district council elections. More than 4 million people are expected to vote in the first elections since the beginning of the unrest in Hong Kong as 1,090 candidates contest 452 seats in 18 districts across the city. The elections are held as Hong Kong is rocked by protests sparked by the now... Еще-withdrawn extradition bill. The rallies, which began in March, have since evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by violent clashes between protesters and police.
