Hong Kong protest leaders call for Sunday rally, city-wide strike


Hong Kong protest leaders plan to hold another mass rally on Sunday, with the announcement coming a day after police cleared tens of thousands of demonstrators from the streets using volleys of tear gas and rubber bullets.

For almost a week, protesters in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory have been coming out in force against a controversial extradition bill that - if passed - would allow suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Eleven people were arrested in clashes between protesters and police on Wednesday, according to Hong Kong's police commissioner, while 79 others were being treated for protest-related injuries on Thursday morning, the city's Hospital Authority said. Those wounded included both civilians and police.
