Hong Kong shops fortify facades as protest violence grows

Hong Kong shops fortify facades as protest violence growsAs Hong Kong's protest movement becomes increasingly violent, some shops are battening the hatches. Banks, retailers, restaurants and travel agents with ties to mainland China or perceived pro-Beijing ownership have fortified their facades over apparent fear of further damage after protesters trashed businesses following a recent pro-democracy rally. A Japanese noodle chain, a sushi chain and Starbucks outlets that have been targeted by protesters also covered up their shopfronts with wooden panels.
