One of Hong Kong protest leaders beaten by unidentified
The creator of the Human Rights Movement Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) and organizer of several of the largest protests in Hong Kong, Jimmy Sham, was attacked by a group of unidentified men armed with knives and hammers. The activist was found lying on the street with multiple head injuries and taken to a hospital, where he remains in serious condition.
According to Hong Kong police, four men in black clothes and masks attacked Jimmy Sham. After the activist was beaten, unknown people got into a private car and disappeared. This is the second case of an attack on Jimmy Shan, the first time he was attacked in late August by masked men armed with baseball bats and knives. Amnesty International called on the Hong Kong authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of this crime.
Meanwhile, Chinese authorities have imposed restrictions on the import of black clothing into Hong Kong. It is this kind of clothing - black t-shirts, jeans and sneakers, as well as black masks - that the protesters chose as their uniform. In addition, courier companies are prohibited from delivering yellow helmets and umbrellas, flags, gloves, masks, metal rods, batons and other items and accessories used by protesters to Hong Kong to Hong Kong.
