Government strongly condemns violent acts of masked rioters
     Protesters blocked roads in a number of areas in Kowloon today (October 12), seriously obstructing traffic. Masked rioters extensively vandalised government facilities, MTR stations and a number of banks and shops selected by them. They also committed arson and hurled petrol bombs at an operating MTR station, posing extreme danger. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government strongly condemns the rioters' acts which breached the public peace and jeopardised people's safety, and appeals to members of the public to dissociate themselves from the rioters and work together with the Government to restore public order.
