Police in full riot gear were seen running through the streets of Hong Kong on Saturday, as the atmosphere of the protests intensified.

Earlier on Saturday, protesters gathered in Kowloon district as another weekend of protests got underway in the Chinese territory.

Also on Saturday, thousands of schoolteachers in Hong Kong marched to the official residence of the city's leader on the other side of Victoria harbour.

A rally in Victoria Park has been called for Sunday by a pro-democracy group that has organised three massive marches through central Hong Kong since June.
