"Thousands of people protested in Hong Kong on Sunday, demanding that China's central government stay out of a political dispute in the southern Chinese city after Beijing indicated that it would intervene to deter pro-independence advocates. Police used pepper spray and batons to contain some of the demonstrators, arresting two. The dispute centers on a provocative display of anti-China sentiment by two pro-independence Hong Kong lawmakers at their swearing-in last month. China's top legislative panel said Beijing must intervene to deter advocates of independence for Hong Kong, calling their actions a threat to national security." (11/06/16)
