Hong Kong police say man set alight after arguing with democracy protestersHong Kong police on Monday said a man was set alight following a heated argument with pro-democracy protesters during a day of widespread clashes across the city, as videos of the brutal attack went viral online. Three videos were posted on messaging channels used by protesters showing a man in a green T-shirt arguing with people on a footbridge. “In the most shocking incident, some rioters poured flammable liquid onto a person and set him on fire,” police spokesman John Tse told reporters at a press conference as the social media videos of the attack were played on a screen.
