Our reporter spoke with a senior policeman who was injured last week. He says that only a minority of the protesters in Hong Kong have been violent.
WONG KA-LUN SENIOR INSPECTOR, HONG KONG POLICE "Actually most of the demonstrations were peaceful. But after each peaceful protest, a small group of people show up, and start to violently attack police officers. Sometimes they even attack innocent bystanders. As I have stated previously, the Hong Kong police will not tolerate violent behaviour. Those who break the law will be brought to justice."
