Hong Kong protesters are planning a 24th straight weekend of pro-democracy rallies as anger deepens against the police over the death of a student.

Demonstrations are planned inside shopping malls across the Chinese-ruled city on Sunday. 

A rally originally planned for Saturday to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall has been postponed and a "support martyrs" assembly is expected in the evening instead.

Protesters have also called for a general strike on Monday and for people to block public transport.

On Friday, violent clashes between protestors and the police erupted as hundreds gathered for candlelight vigils for the deceased student.

Since June, protesters have been fighting for greater democratic rights.
