WRAPUP 8-Hong Kong protesters clash with police, angry at lack of prosecutions after subway mob attack

    By James Pomfret and Greg Torode
    HONG KONG, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Thousands of Hong Kong
residents held a sometimes scrappy anti-government protest on
Wednesday at a suburban subway station that was attacked by a
mob last month, angry that nobody has yet been prosecuted for
the violence.
    Some masked protesters clashed with police, spraying fire
extinguishers from the inside of Yuen Long station as others
smeared the floor with cooking oil, beer and detergent to stop
the police advancing.
    Some blocked station exits with bins, booths and other
station furniture as others sealed roads outside the station,
aiming green laser beams at the lines of shield-bearing
officers. Others threw empty fire extinguishers at police lines.
    Many inside the station sat quietly.
    It was the latest in a series of demonstrations since June
against a perceived erosion of freedoms in the former British
colony that returned to Chinese rule in 1997.
    It also marked a return to aggression after a brief lull in
tensions following a huge peaceful march on Sunday.
    But the standoff stopped short of full pitched battles with
police refraining from using tear gas or attempting to storm
protester lines. Only one rock was seen hitting a police shield
and most protesters were headed home before midnight.
    The protest marked the night of July 21, when more than 100
white-shirted men stormed the Yuen Long station hours after
protesters had marched through central Hong Kong and defaced
China's Liaison Office - the main symbol of Beijing's authority.
    Using pipes and clubs, the men attacked black-clad
protesters returning from Hong Kong island as well as passers-by
and journalists, wounding 45 people.
    Democratic Party legislator Lam Cheuk-ting, wounded in the
attack by suspected triad gangsters, said he believed the
protesters wanted a peaceful night on Wednesday but he could not
rule out further violence - from gangsters or the police.
    “It is impossible to predict... It is deeply disappointing
that all these weeks later we still don’t have an independent
inquiry into those events,” he told Reuters.
    Squads of police were stationed on the station perimeter and
some protesters jeered and shone lasers at them. A small crowd
of masked young men gathered on a station balcony, swearing and
cursing at police vans down a side street.
    Anger erupted in June over a now-suspended bill that would
allow criminal suspects in Hong Kong to be extradited to
mainland China for trial. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said again
on Tuesday the legislation was dead.
    The unrest has been fuelled by broader worries about the
erosion of freedoms guaranteed under the "one country, two
systems" formula adopted after Hong Kong's return to China,
including an independent judiciary and the right to protest.
Demonstrations have included the storming of the legislature and
havoc at the airport.
    Beijing has reacted sharply to the protests and has accused 
foreign countries, including the United States, of fomenting
unrest. China has also sent clear warning that forceful
intervention is possible, with paramilitary forces holding
drills in neighbouring Shenzhen.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N25B1RJ

    Speaking to CBS programme "This Morning" on Tuesday, Pompeo
highlighted remarks by President Donald Trump at the weekend
warning against a crackdown like Beijing's suppression of
pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989.
    Trump said this would make reaching a deal he has been
seeking to end a trade war with China "very hard".
    In an editorial on Tuesday, China’s influential state-run
tabloid, the Global Times, called Monday's comments by U.S. Vice
President Mike Pence linking the trade talks to the Hong Kong
protests "outrageous".
    Likely worsening already strained ties between Beijing and
London, a Chinese national working at Britain's Hong Kong
consulate has been detained in China's border city of Shenzhen
for violating the law.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N25H1MX
