A video of a man in Hong Kong being set on fire by anti-government protestors has gone viral along with another video of police shooting a protestor at point blank range. As The Daily Mail reports:
On top of that, another man was badly wounded after he was doused in petrol and set on fire after remonstrating with protesters in separate clashes at Ma On Shan Plaza.
Horrifying footage of the attack showed the man being splashed with fuel and engulfed in flames after arguing with protesters on a footbridge and telling them ‘you are not Chinese’.
The man managed to rip off his flaming shirt but was also critically injured in hospital after suffering severe burns.
The violence prompted further anger today but Hong Kong’s embattled leader Carrie Lam said the violence had gone far beyond calls for democracy and said the protesters were now the people’s enemy.
The brutal footage underscores the incredible violence and destruction that has been rattling Hong Kong for months after anti-Communist protests broke out.
