Hong Kong: Peaceful Protesters Throng Streets In Rain
HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of anti-government protesters rallied peacefully in Hong Kong on Sunday, filling major thoroughfares under torrential downpours in the eleventh week of what have been often violent demonstrations in the Asian financial hub. Sunday's turnout showed that the movement still has broad-based support despite the ugly scenes witnessed in recent days when protesters occupied the Chinese-ruled city's airport, a move for which some activists apologized. It was the calmest weekend protest since the latest demonstrations against perceived creeping Beijing influence in the former British colony began.
