    Protesters in Hong Kong have come out in support of the teenager shot by police during violent demonstrations on Tuesday.

    The 18-year-old is said to be in a stable condition in hospital after being hit in the chest at close range.

    Police say it was an act of self-defence.

    Al Jazeera's Adrian Brown reports on how the increasing violence has divided opinion in the semi-autonomous city.
