Baton-wielding Hong Kong police fired warning shots and pepper spray early Tuesday after a riot erupted when officials tried to shift illegal hawkers, the worst clashes since mass pro-democracy protests in 2014. Police said nearly 90 officers were injured by broken glass or hard objects, while dozens of protesters were also hurt in the Chinese New Year clash. Footage showed protesters levering up bricks from pavements in the busy Mongkok district, charging police lines with homemade shields and setting rubbish on fire in the middle of the road.
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — It's been 100 years since New Hampshire held its first presidential primary, and it seems like some of the current candidates have been hanging around for nearly that long. More than a few started popping up a full two years before Tuesday's state election, and nearly all have spent recent months hosting town hall meetings, holding rallies and meeting voters.
