Violence overshadowed Hong Kong's pro-democracy, anti-government protests this weekend, and the situation has reportedly not shown any signs of slowing down. Demonstrators reportedly threw bricks and Molotov cocktails at Hong Kong police officers, and a police media-liaison officer was hit in the leg by an arrow. In return, the police fired tear gas and water cannons at the protesters. A clash between student protesters and police at Hong Kong's Polytechnic University led authorities to issue a warning for people to leave the campus. All schools in the city are expected to remain closed Monday due to safety concerns.
