Wielding steel rods and batons, suspected gang members attacked commuters at the Yuen Long metro railway station.

Hong Kong‘s leader Carrie Lam has strongly condemned violence following a mass rally against her government.

At least 40 people were injured when a mob assaulted anti-government protesters.

One of them is reported to be in critical condition.
