Violence has escalated to a point that smacks of terrorism in the Hong Kong Special 上海419
Administrative Region, China’s top authority on the city’s affairs warned on Monday.
上海419品茶微信In Beijing, Yang Guang, a spokesman for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Coun
cil, said radical protesters have repeatedly attacked police officers in the past few days and have com
mitted serious violent crimes. Such violence has begun to show the “first signs of terrorism”, Yang said. 上海419
Yang strongly condemned protesters who threw gasoline bombs at police officers on Sunday night.
上海419品茶微信A very small number of rioters hurled the bombs at police officers at police sta
tions in Cheung Sha Wan, Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai on Sunday night. A police off
icer was hit by one such bomb thrown by a protester in Tsim Sha Tsui, causing burns to his legs.
An initial diagnosis showed that the officer suffered second-degree bu 上海419品茶微信
rns on 10 percent of his left leg, and first-degree burns on 3 percent of his right leg.
“We express our strong indignation and condemnation of this sinister, reckless and serious crime,” Yang said.
Such violent acts have brutally violated the rule of law and social order in Hong Kon 上海419
g, seriously threatened the lives of Hong Kong citizens and challenged Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, he added. Such
acts must be “resolutely cracked down upon” in accordance with the law, and the affairs of
上海419品茶微信fice firmly supports Hong Kong police enforcing the law and bringing criminals to justice as soon as possible.
The central government’s liaison office in Hong Kong also issued a serious condemnation of violent lawbreakers.
ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko
上海419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.

ated on early Sunday that anyone participating in an unauthorized assembly will be committing an offence.
A large group of protesters gathered in Tai Po on Friday although their request of such an event had been turned down by the police.
上海419品茶微信They damaged public properties and blocked thoroughfares including the K
owloon entrance of the Cross-Harbor Tunnel, and they also set fires in various places.
According to the police, some protesters aimed laser beams at police officers and some even hurled objects and stones at police officers.
After repeated warnin上海419gs, the police dispersed the protesters, sometime using tear gas when necessary.
During the operation, HKSAR police arrested 16 people for unlawful assembly, possession of offe
上海419nsive weapon, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r
ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信
ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.
The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li
上海419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.
The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle
xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.上海419品茶微信
The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon
day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.
