BEIJING, (Sputnik) – Hong Kong police have fired tear gas at protesters, who were rallying against a now-suspended bill that would allow extraditions to mainland China, local media reported on Saturday.

Tear gas was first fired at about 5:20 p.m. local time (09:20 GMT), the South China Morning Post reported.
