URGENT Police use pepper spray in scuffles with protesters at Hong Kong airport Hong Kong, Aug 13, 2019 (AFP) - A small group of riot police used pepper spray to beat back protesters outside the city's airport on Tuesday night as they tried to escort a man who was being taken away in an ambulance. Around two dozen officers found their police van blocked by a few hundred hardline protesters as it followed the ambulance, an AFP reporter on the scene said. The police officers jumped out of the van to clear a path, using pepper spray on the crowds and detaining at least two people. jta/amu
