Photo Story – An eye for an eye

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A protester wears a mock eye patch as protesters occupy Hong Kong International Airport in Hong Kong, China, early 13 August 2019. Protesters have been wearing eye patches in references to a woman who was shot in the eye with a beanbag round during a clash with police. The Airport Authority virtually shut down the airport on 12 August as thousands of protesters occupied both the arrival and departure halls. Hong Kong has been gripped by weeks of mass protests, which began in June 2019 over a now-suspended extradition bill.
