Tensions were mounting in Hong Kong on the eve of China’s 70th National Day. Police warned that protests would be extremely dangerous on Oct 1. They said activists were moving one step closer to terrorism.
Hong Kong police received intelligence that some hardcore violent protesters are inciting others to commit extreme acts, such as murdering police officers, disguising as police officers to kill others and setting fires in petrol stations. During the press conference, they expressed strong condemnation against all criminal and violent acts, noting that such acts are one step closer to terrorism. #HK
