Hong Kong leader refuses to accept demands

The city's Hospital Authority and police force gave differing accounts of how many protesters had been shot during Monday morning skirmishes.

The protester crumples to the ground after being shot.

The dramatic scene was caught on video, as demonstrators blocked train lines and roads during the morning commute.

To many, the police seem to be deploying tougher tactics while rounding up radical demonstrators as the former British enclave hurtles into its 24th straight week of protests and clashes since June. An extremely graphic video of the attack quickly spread across social media. Several schools announced they would suspend classes on Monday, including Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), Alex Chow's alma mater.

Police fired tear gas in the narrow streets of the Central business district where some protesters, crouching behind umbrellas, blocked streets as office workers crowded the pavements and hurled anti-government abuse. The most important solution is to have an independent investigation. "The government still isn't listening to us".

Police said they arrested at least 88 people on various charges, including unlawful assembly, possession of an offensive weapon, criminal damage and wearing masks at an unlawful assembly. Meanwhile the police have seemingly lowered the threshold to engage with the protesters. Police have denied that claim.

In two earlier live-fire incidents, riot police had fired shots after they came under attack from groups of teenagers.

The death of a university student last week from a fall has reignited rage in the protest movement.

More than 1000 complaints about police operations during the protests have been received, including 95 allegations of assault and over 460 reports of misconduct.

The panel said in a statement that the existing Hong Kong police complaints process lacked "the powers, capacity and independent investigative capability necessary to match the scale of events and the standards required of an worldwide police watchdog operating in a society that values freedoms and rights".

Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam addresses a news conference in Hong Kong on Monday.

"I do not agree that our officers are out of control with their use of force, but of course we are under great pressure and our officers also encounter hard times during our operations".

Violence has escalated as tempers have flared on both sides as the Hong Kong protests enter their sixth month. Don't assume that police would never open fire. Authorities said only one protester was shot and was in critical condition at a nearby hospital.

"One of the most unsafe things any police officer can do is move away independently", said Professor Clifford Stott of Keele University in the United Kingdom, who was one of the experts on an worldwide panel appointed to advise Hong Kong's Independent Police Complaints Council on the protests.

Passersby then argued with police leading to riot police firing pepper spray.

According to Tse, the officer involved has been identified online and threats have been made against his family.

It is five months since over 1 million Hong Kong people took to the streets demanding a proposed extradition bill was scrapped. The developments followed a weekend of peaceful memorials for the student and clashes between protesters and police at shopping malls across Hong Kong.

"I am willing to sacrifice my life for Hong Kong".

In one incident which sparked uproar, a police officer on Friday evening shouting at protesters that he and his colleagues were "opening a bottle of champagne" after the death of the student. "Police have strict guidelines and orders regarding the use of firearms".
