Police Tackle Protester After Chase Along Hong Kong Street

Police tackled and cuffed a man after chasing him through the streets of Hong Kong on May 27, this footage shows. In the video, one police officer falls to the ground while giving chase.

Local reports said about 240 people were arrested during the latest protests in the city, which saw police fire pepper pellets at crowds.

The protests have been sparked by a national security law proposed by Beijing and came ahead of the Hong Kong legislature’s reading of a law that would make criticism of the national anthem a criminal offence. Credit: PolyU Campus Radio via Storyful
