HK Liaison Office denounces violent acts against mainland travelers
The Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Wednesday strongly denounced the violent acts against two travelers from the Chinese mainland by radical protesters at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday night.
"Rioters on Tuesday detained, harassed and assaulted a visitor and a journalist from the Chinese mainland. Such violent acts could almost be described as 'terrorism'," the liaison office said in a statement, adding that it will support the Hong Kong police to bring rioters to justice.
Fu Guohao, reporter with Chinese mainland media outlet Global Times, was bound with zip ties and assaulted by some violent protesters.
