Hong Kong has seen yet another weekend of anti-government demonstrations.

Thousands marched the streets of the Chinese-controlled city on Saturday, this time in the Mong Kok district.

Protests began in June against a bill that would allow people to be extradited to stand trial in mainland China.

However they have escalated and grown more and more violent.

Police have even been accused of using excessive force to quell the unrest.
