Hong Kong police have arrested at least 12 people, including a woman, for what they called a “violent incident” during anti-government protests that have continued for over the past several weeks, local media reported.

According to Hong Kong Free Press online, the detained persons, ranged from 14 to 36 years of age, have been charged with unlawful assembly, assaulting a police officer, obstructing a police officer, possession of offensive weapons, contravening the Air Navigation (Hong Kong) Order 1995 and failing to carry identity documents.

Besides, a 31-year-old person has also been detained for protests on two separate dates.

People in Hong Kong held million marches twice and are protesting local government’s push for amendment in extradition law which will make it legal to send suspects to China, Macao and Taiwan.
