Police in Hong Kong have fired tear gas and water cannon at protesters rallying against China's plans to impose a new security law on the territory.
Thousands of demonstrators have been marching through the city centre. Police say 120 have been arrested.
Earlier, 200 senior politicians from around the world issued a joint statement criticising China's plan.
Signatories called it a "comprehensive assault on the city's autonomy, rule of law and fundamental freedoms".

China is seeking to pass a law that would ban "treason, secession, sedition and subversion" in the territory.
Protesters gathered in the busy Causeway Bay and Wan Chai districts of the city on Sunday, chanting slogans against the government
and waving banners. "People may be criminalised only for words they say or publish opposing the government," 25-year-old Vincent told AFP

assembly and a ban on large public gatherings to enforce social distancing. Some protesters threw objects such as umbrellas and
water bottles at officers, and used bins and other debris to set up road blocks. Reports say Sunday's protest followed a
similar pattern to many of last year's demonstrations, many of which turned violent.
The "draft decision" - as it is known before approval by China's National People's Congress - includes an article that says

Hong Kong "must improve" national security. It adds: "When needed, relevant national security organs of the Central People's
Government will set up agencies in Hong Kong to fulfil relevant duties to safeguard national security in accordance with the law."
Earlier this week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo condemned the plans, which he described as a "death knell" for the city's
freedoms. The UK, Australia and Canada have also expressed their "deep concern".
