Hong Kong police maintain a press convention on current protests.
The Hong Kong Particular Administrative Area (HKSAR) authorities condemned violence and vandalism on Christmas Eve within the metropolis, calling the harmful actions taken by rioters “outrageous.” On Thursday, masked rioters stormed a restaurant in Mongkok MOKO mall, occupied the seats and made a nuisance of themselves by intentionally spilling salt and pepper. In addition they threw paint bombs contained in the mall. Given their unlawful actions, riot police entered the mall to revive order. #HongKong
