Hundreds of pro-Beijing protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong on Saturday to voice their hope that the police can "restore the order of the society" and "find out the truth" following a death of a 70-year-old cleaner during clashes on Thursday night.

Protesters laid white flowers outside the Legislative Council building to pay their respects to the man who died on Thursday after reportedly being hit in the head with a brick, during clashes between anti-government protesters and Beijing supporters.

"The black people killed the worker, we are very angry, we all stand up in Hong Kong to fight against the mob, we are no longer silent," said one of the protesters, Gary.

Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill since the end of March. The rallies later evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by months of clashes between protesters and the authorities.
