Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have appealed to Donald Trump to help them as their latest march descended into violent clashes with police.
Thousands of people, many carrying US flags, marched to the US consulate to deliver petitions before police used tear gas to disperse them after fires were started in an upmarket district.
The US national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, was sung by demonstrators, who urged the US president to “liberate” the city.
Some carried banners reading: “President Trump, please save Hong Kong” and “Make Hong Kong great again”.
Others shouted slogans such as: “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong” and “Resist Beijing, liberate Hong Kong.”
