 Violent clashes between masked assailants and demonstrators inside the Hong Kong Metro

    A group of assailants stormed  a subway station in Hong Kong on Sunday night , attacking passengers ,with batons in an apparent attack on pro-democracy protesters.

    Witnesses say the attackers appeared to target commuters who attended anti-government protests earlier in the day,in a dramatic escalation of violence amid ongoing protests in the Chinese territory.

    Video from the event showes dozens of men, mostly in masks, storming a mass transit station in Yuen Lon late on Sunday, chasing passengers and beating them with sticks. Among those hurt in the attack were demonstrators returning from a large anti-government rally, as well as a pregnant woman and a woman holding a child, according to witnesses.

    Hong Kong's hospital authority said at least 45 people were injured ,including one who is critically injured.
