SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Demonstrators took to the streets in Hong Kong again on Sunday, partly to demand an investigation into allegations of police violence at recent protests.

Nearly 10,000 protesters gathered in Sha Tin just a day after reports that police used pepper spray and clubs to subdue demonstrators in Sheung Shui.

The protesters in Sheung Shui on Saturday had targeted a group of traders. Police used pepper spray to break up the confrontation between the two groups. Small scuffles broke out between police and protesters afterward.

The demonstrators were protesting the practice of parallel trading, or buying goods in Hong Kong to sell them in China. Critics say the practice leads to shortages of goods in Hong Kong.

Protests have been going on in Hong Kong for months, but most often against a proposed law that would allow the extradition of those in Hong Kong to mainland China.
