A few thousand protesters in Hong Kong on Thursday readied for potentially more clashes with police over a planned extradition law with mainland China, a day after police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at unarmed demonstrators, Reuters reports.

Uniformed police with helmets and shields blocked overhead walkways, while a long row of police vans were parked nearby. Plain clothes police officers checked identification of commuters.
